Anemia and Quality of Life: Association with Diagnosis and Treatment of Anemias

  • D. R. Thomas
Reference work entry

Abstract:

 Anemia appears to have a direct effect on health-related quality of life across the spectrum of many disease conditions. The presence of anemia has been linked to frailty, functional impairment, mobility impairment, and falls in older persons. The chief reasons for this rise in both incidence and prevalence of anemia with aging are gender-related changes in sex hormones and the accumulation of comorbid conditions. Anemia also appears to be an independent predictor of mortality, whether or not there is an associated underlying disease.
