Iron deficiency and Helicobacter pylori infection in the United States



Iron deficiency and Helicobacter pylori infection in the United States



American Journal of Epidemiology 163(2): 127-134



Using data from the current National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1999-2000), the authors assessed whether Helicobacter pylori infection is associated with iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) in the United States. Iron deficiency was defined as at least two abnormal results out of three biomarkers of iron stores. IDA was defined as a low hemoglobin level in the presence of iron deficiency. H. pylori infection was measured by serology.
