Anjali Dharmani*, Chandramani Parinit, Sumaiya Patel, Seema Kapadiya, Sahiba Jamil and Apurva Dixit

Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) is one of the most common dietary deficiencies, accounting for about half of all instances of anemia. It is widespread in many impoverished nations. In most cases, thorough blood analysis and high serum ferritin levels may be used to diagnose this deficient disease. IDA may develop as a result of physiological pressures placed on developing children, adolescents, and pregnant women. In the case of all patients, however, the underlying reason should be explored. Inevitably, proper therapy of this illness improves quality of life, reduces iron deficient symptoms, and reduces the risk of death. The necessity of a blood transfusion oral iron supplementation and intravenous iron therapy are two therapeutic options. As a result, intravenous iron supplementation is regarded an undesirable technique, and the safety problems connected with this strategy in the event of extremely high dosages or in the context of very high ferritin levels are not well understood. The review's goal is to give a critical overview and up to date information about IDA diagnosis and treatment options.
