This online medical calculator helps you to know the total iron deficit in your body. Just input the required data and click on the calculate button to know the total iron deficit.

#### Formula:

The total iron deficit is calculated using the Ganzoni formula: Total Iron Deficit = Weight x (Target Hb in g/dL - Actual Hb in g/dL) x 2.4 + Iron Stores Note: 500 if W > 35kg 15 mg/kg if W < 35kg Recommended value : 500mg

#### Example

Let us consider an example where the the body weight of a person is 70kg, target Hb and the actual Hb is 15 and 9 respectively. Iron for Iron stores is 500.
Total Iron Deficit = Weight x (Target Hb - Actual Hb) x 2.4 + Iron Stores
Total Iron Deficit = 70 x (15 - 9) x 2.4 + 500
Total Iron Deficit = 1508 mg.
