Abstract
Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is the most common nutritional anemia in India, which is managed with oral supplementation of iron. Gastritis induced with these iron pills is a common complication following of oral iron (ferrous sulfate) supplementation. So proper care must be taken when iron supplementation is prescribed. When the side effects are encountered, oral iron is stopped, and treatment should be started immediately.
