Abstract provided by Publisher
Anaemia is a very common complication of chronic liver disease with a multifactoral etiology. Despite the well known causes such as: blood lost, shortening red blood cells survival, increasing plasma volume, hypersplenism, authors present the role of hepcidin. The anemia of chronic disease, including liver disease, is a hematologic syndrome characterized by hypoferremia with adequate reticuloendothelial iron stores. Hepcidin is a heptide hormone
that has been implicated in controlling the release of iron from cells.
