Blood Disorders 2 There are many different blood disorders, and we should be aware of the symptoms so we know what to look for when we believe there is a problem. Amy, a four- year old Caucasian female, has been complaining of being tired all the time, she is pale and a picky eater. Her mother is a single mom with a small budget to feed a large family. Amy only eats pastas, breads, and hot dogs, and drinks only artificial fruit punch. In this case giving Amy’s background, and symptoms I believe that Amy has an iron deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency anemia is very serious and should not be taking lightly; iron deficiency is one of the most causes of anemia. Without enough iron the body falls into a synthesize hemoglobin, and the ability to transport oxygen is reduced. Iron requirements are the greatest the first two years of life, so it’s very important for pregnant women to intake a lot of iron to support the growth of the fetus.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
