ABSTRACT

Iron is an essential functional component of Hemoglobin and the production of erythrocytes require timely delivery of iron to erythroid precursors, especially in pregnancy when rate of erythropoiesis is believed to be increased.This study was carried out to evaluate the iron status and level of some haematological parameters among pregnant women in enugu south eastern nigeria. A total number of 100 subjects and 50 controls were used. Blood samples were collected into plain containers and EDTA containers and analyzed for their iron level and some haematological parameters respectively,using Bio Elab fully automated chemistry analyzer, AS-280, and Mindray auto haematology analyzer,BC-2800 model, and the results expressed as mean ± S.D.The mean iron level of the subjects was 102.83 ± 1.38 mg/dl, while that of the control was 102.68 ± 0.94 mg/dl.The iron levels and Hemoglobin were found to be moderately correlated, r(150) = .425, p<.005. The result shows that there is no significant difference between the iron levels of the subjects and the control and also there is a moderate correlation between the iron level and hemoglobin.
