Speaking of iron deficiency, many people will associate with anemia, the iron deficiency is really a anemia, however, do you know? The relationship between iron deficiency and coronary heart disease is also very close, even impact on the risk of coronary heart disease. Now, let’s take a look at how this is something. Iron is very important to the human body, iron is a necessary and important trace of mineral elements. Iron is not only a component that constitutes an important tissue organ (such as muscle, liver, spleen, bone marrow, etc.), but also participates in the synthesis of myoglobin and hemoglobin, close to the oxygen transportation relationship with the body. At the same time, Iron is also involved in the composition of various enzymes in the body. About 2/3 of the iron in the human body stores in the hemoglobin of red blood cells. When the human body is lack of iron, it will cause gradual exhaustion in vivo, and hemoglobin synthesis is reduced, which in turn leads to iron deficiency anemia. When the human body is severely deficient, it may lead to an increase in the risk of disease. There are many patients with iron deficient anemia in my country. The results of the fourth nutrition survey in China have shown that anemia is 20.1%, half of which is iron deficiency anemia. It is conceivable that there is a crowd of iron deficiency not in a small number. Prevention of iron deficiency can reduce the risk of middle-aged coronary heart disease, most of the middle-aged people have a lack of iron, and iron deficiency and coronary heart disease and death risk have been related. A study published by the heart and vascular center scholars in Hamburg, Germany pointed out that most middle-aged people have iron deficiency, and by preventing iron deficiency, approximately 10% of new coronary heart disease in the middle-aged population in the next decade. The study observed more than 12,000 ordinary people who had no history of coronary or stroke or stroke. They were 59 years old. According to iron deficiency in the body, they were divided into two categories: absolutely lack of iron, referring to human storage iron decline; functional lack of iron Refers to the decline in the restriction of the human storage or the iron level used by the body cycle. At the beginning of the study, 60% of participants had absolutely lack of iron, and 64% of participants had functional lack of iron. After 13.3 years of follow-up, the analysis found that the risk of coronary heart disease in functional lack of Iron Iron, which has no functional ispricolid, increased by 26% of cardiovascular death, with an increase of 12% due to death. Compared with no absolute deficiency, the risk of coronary heart disease is absolutely 20%, but has nothing to do with mortality. The blindness is careful with side effects, of course, the above findings still require a large scale study to verify. But this also reminds us that iron deficiency will not only lead to anemia, but also may hurt the \”heart\”, but also to attach importance to iron deficiency. In particular, special people should check the iron levels regularly, daily diet should choose to have a hematological animal food supplement. So, how should I scientifically iron now? First, iron deficiency often appear in middle-aged and elderly people, pregnancy and lactation women and infants, suggesting that these people have regular inspections, screening is deficient. If there is an iron deficiency, it should be determined under the guidance of a professional doctor to determine a reasonable supplement plan, which should avoid the blindness of a large amount of iron to lead to unnecessary side effects. Second, the diet is quite paying attention to. According to the \”Dietary Guide of China\”, it is recommended that adult women take 20mg iron every day, and men are 12mg. but,Sufficient intake is not equal to absorption.We often say that the spinach is iron, but the iron absorption rate in spinach is only 7%, far lower than the iron absorption rate in animal food.Therefore, it is recommended that you take the right amount of red meat, animal blood or liver to supplement iron.In addition, more citrus, green leaf vegetables such as vitamin C can promote the absorption of non-heminoid iron.
