Both genders have known causes of IDA such as use of medications that cause GI bleeding, sur- gical procedures that effect stomach acidity and intestinal absorption, eating disorders and de- creased dietary intake of iron. IA is known to effect the elderly population who are high risk for chronic disease and also hospitalized patients who currently have a chronic illness. Infectious diseases can cause AI such as tuberculosis, infection in the lungs, an altered immune system, immune system endo- carditis, and osteomyelitis. Those who have inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, heart failure and inflammatory bowel disease are at risk for AI. References Huether, S. E., & McCance, K. L.
