Abstract:Anemia remains the most common disease in the world. Iron deficiency (ID), its most common cause, affects over one-third of the world's population. While infants aged 6 to 24 months are at increased risk, some of them are already anemic by 6 months of age, and thus have already been exposed to its negative effects. To determine the prevalence of anemia and investigate factors contributing to hemoglobin (Hb) and anemia (Hb<110g/L) at 6 months of age in rural Bangladesh, 424 infants were followed prospectively from birth to 6 months. Data were analyzed for 166 infants; the prevalence of anemia was 76.5%. After controlling for confounding variables, birth weight was the only variable associated with Hb (positive association; P=0.008). Infants born to anemic mothers (OR=3.5; P=0.02) or teenage mothers (OR=2.6; P=0.04) were more likely to be anemic. Anemia continues to pose a problem, even before the assumed period of increased risk.
