Brief Summary:
Iron deficiency anemia is a common complication of liver cirrhosis in childern and may affects there life this study to improve the outcome of these patients

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Iron Deficiency, Anaemia in Children Liver Cirrhosis Diagnostic Test: transferrin receptor concentration Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Patients with cirrhosis are at risk of developing both IDA and anemia of chronic disease concomitantly, and there adverse effects can deteriorate general condition and affect of quality of life in these patients .Also because it is easier to correct IDA than anemia of chronic disease, so this study of the prevalence of IDA helping us in the diagnosis and treatment of IDA and can reduce the need for other diagnostic tests and improve the quality of life in patients with cirrhosis .
