ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study that analyzes yield from investigating iron deficiency anaemia in people under 45 years of age. The British Society of Gastroenterology recommends upper and lower gastrointestinal tract investigation in all men and post-menopausal women with iron deficiency anaemia (IDA), with anti-endomysial antibodies in pre-menopausal women. Significant important pathology is found in young males with IDA. Retrospective study suggests similar findings in menstruating females.
