G.R. Veghari, A.R. Mansourian and A.J. Marjani

The main purpose of this study is the comparison due to Iron deficiency in the villages of Gorgan city. Forty eight and 361 non-pregnant women were be classified in two groups for comparing among 415 women of 18-35 years old were chosen by compound sampling. After sampling, hematological examination was done by using Coulter counter in 9000 model and measuring of the serum iron and Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) were performed by using spectrophotometery. In the pregnant women, serum Iron less than 30 mic g dL-1, Hemoglobin less than 11 g dL-1, Transferrin Saturation (TS) less than 16% were be consider as anemia point and in non-pregnant women, this point is the serum iron less than 40 mic g dL-1, hemoglobin less than 12 g dL-1 and TS less than 16%. In pregnant women, the prevalence of the anemia on the basis of serum iron index, TS and Hb in seen 24.2, 42.4, 18.2%, respectively and in non-pregnant women is 21.2, 34.55 and 20.98%. In pregnant and non-pregnant women, the Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) is 83.48 and 85.34 Flit. There is a significant statistical differences on base of mean of Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) and MCV among non-pregnant and pregnant women in 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimester (p<0.005). On the time of the sampling, 33% of pregnant and 8.4% of non-pregnant women have used Iron compounds. The results of this study shows in pregnancy period, supplement of the iron is necessary and person`s need must be evaluated before prescribing drug.
