Background: The main aim of the study was to determine the efficacy of Sodium Feredetate with Ferrous Sulphate in treatment of iron deficiency anaemia in pregnant women. Rise in haemoglobin after one and two months of treatment with respective drugs and their side effects.
Methods: Prospective randomised study carried out between Jan 2008-July 2009 at Government Tertiary Care Level Hospital OBG Department in Mangalore on 74 pregnant women with anaemia.
Results: Sodium feredetate (Na Fe EDTA) in iron deficiency anaemia led to a significant and rapid rise in haemoglobin levels than that with ferrous sulphate in our study.
Conclusions: Sodium Feredetate in iron deficiency anaemia led to a significant and rapid rise in haemoglobin levels than that with Ferrous Sulphate and also associated with minimal or no side effects.
Haldane Pharma’s Ferrlilex tablets contain a unique iron salt SODIUM FEREDETATE. Sodium Feredetate is an innovation in which iron is “insulated” or “sequestered” with the sodium salt of ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) to form a chelate. The EDTA has more affinity for the phosphates and phytates in the diet (which are disruptive to iron absorption) and form complexes with them to leave Ferrous Iron to be freely available for absorption. This ensures more iron is available for absorption than with a conventional Iron salt. Moreover, Ferrlilex tablets also contain other essential haemopoeitic factors such as Folic acid and Vitamin B12. Ferrlilex releases the ingredients in the duodenum ensuring there are no side effects.
Ferrlilex is Available in leading clinics
