Abstract

Aims: To classify the different types of anemia among moderately to severely disabled women living in the community and examine the relationship between types of anemia and mortality. Methods: We studied anemia in 688 women, ≥65 years, in the Women's Health and Aging Study I, a population-based study of moderately to severely disabled older women living in the community in Baltimore, Maryland. Anemia was defined by World Health Organization criteria. Causes of anemia were classified as due to nutritional deficiencies (iron, folate, and B12 deficiencies), anemia of chronic inflammation, anemia with renal disease, and unexplained anemia. Results: 147 of 688 (21.4%) women were anemic (hemoglobin
