Journal Podcast on Risk of Anemia in Postmenopausal Women

A new study using data from the Observational Cohort of the Women's Health Initiative, published in the April issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, indicates inadequate nutrition is linked to a greater risk of anemia in postmenopausal women. Lead investigator Cynthia A. Thomson, PhD, RD, associate professor of nutritional sciences at the University of Arizona, discusses the importance and implications of this study in a new podcast.

The podcast is available on the Journal's website.

"This study suggests that inadequate nutrient intakes are a significant risk factor for anemia in this population of older women and use of multivitamin/mineral supplements is not associated with lower rates of anemia," Thomson says. "Overall mortality is increased in relation to a diagnosis of anemia; and anemia, particularly iron deficiency, has been associated with reduced capacity for physical work and physical inactivity, injury related to falls and hospitalizations, making this an important health care concern in the aging."
