She was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and was provided supplements to resolve the problem. 

  1.  What is IDA and how common is it?  Who is at risk?
  2. Explain every test result in the chart above.
  3. Based on your knowledge of the functions of hemoglobin and iron, explain her symptoms.

Our 5 main goals:

  1. Explore a variety of research tools
  2. Uncover NEW keywords & phrases
  3. Create a flexible search strategy using AND & *
  4. Share the title of one relevant source
  5. Have fun!
