Author(s): Dr. Justin K Jose and Dr. Sarika ES
Abstract:
Background: Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is considered to be among the most important contributing factors to the global burden of disease. Iron deficiency in adult women has consequences for cognition, emotions, quality of life, and behavior. The iron supplements which the other schools of medicine offer for treating iron deficiency anemia have numerous side effects. Homoeopathy has a great role to play in correcting IDA.
Objectives
1.To study the presentation & etiology of Iron Deficiency Anemia in women of reproductive age group
2.Efficacy of Homoeopathic management in Iron Deficiency Anaemia in women of reproductive age group.
Methods: 30 cases were selected for the study based on random sampling. Diagnosis & prognosis were made on basis of symptoms along with Hemoglobin concentration & Serum ferritin. A scoring chart based on improvement criteria was formulated to assess the efficacy of the treatment. Paired‘t’ test was used to determine the variation of scores before and after treatment and to evaluate if they are statistically significant.
Results: According to the study, 83.33% (25 cases) show improvement & 16.67% cases (5 cases) shows no improvement. This was statistically interpreted and a marked reduction was seen in the post test scores when compared to pretest scores. The calculated‘t’ value is greater than table‘t’ value.
