Iron Deficiency Anaemia in Pregnancy - Lunchtime Symposium (14 June 2022), with Prof. Breymann

GYN & PERINATAL ZURICH > Iron Deficiency Anemia in Pregnancy - Lunchtime Symposium (June 14, 2022), with Prof. Breymann

Iron is vital for the human body. In particular, iron is essential for the transport of oxygen.

Women have a higher iron requirement than men. During pregnancy, the need for the metal is much higher. This is particularly dangerous for expectant mothers. They need extra blood cells so that the baby and the placenta can grow.

Research shows that one third of pregnant women suffer from iron deficiency. If the deficiency is extreme, those affected suffer from anaemia, because without iron, not enough blood cells can be formed. Iron deficiency must therefore be treated in a targeted manner.

At the Lunchtime Symposium on 14 June 20922 Prof. Breymann (Zurich, Switzerland) and Dr. Rebecka Hansen (Copenhagen, Denmark) will report on the latest findings.
