AbstractAnemia is a serious public health concern in most of the developing countries and modern literature indicates that there has been a significant growth in its rates, especially among the population with lower living standards. These cases increase social tension among population and arise numerous medico-biological problems which may lead to CND (Chronic Non-communicable diseases). Additionally, it is a common knowledge that drug addicted part of the population are predisposed to IDS (Iron Deficiency Syndrome) and IDA (Iron Deficiency Anemia).
The development of unfavorable epidemiological conditions in relation to iron deficiency states in the population of drug addicts is to varying degrees associated with the above 27 risk factors and 6 pathological conditions. The presence of alimentary (6), behavioral epidemiological (6), lipid (3), non-lipid biochemical (3) and microelementous (3) factors, as well as associated pathological conditions (6), significantly often leads to the formation of IDS and increases the relative the risk of developing a continuum from them.
