Background and aim: This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of anemia among female students based on reported symptoms. The study aimed to shed light on this health issue within the student population and emphasize the importance of addressing it promptly.

Methods: The data were collected through a questionnaire distributed to 142 female students aged between 18 and 25 years old. The questionnaire consisted of questions related to the symptoms of anemia and the students' medical history. Data analysis was conducted to determine the prevalence of anemia symptoms among different academic levels.

Results: The findings reveal a significant prevalence of anemia symptoms, with approximately 39% of the participants exhibiting suggestive indicators. The prevalence of anemia symptoms varied among different academic levels, with level one students showing a higher incidence of fatigue, while level two students exhibited more symptoms of paleness.

Conclusions: The study highlights the need for regular screenings and awareness campaigns to ensure early detection and appropriate management of anemia among female students. Tailored interventions and preventive measures targeting specific student groups should be implemented to effectively address anemia. The outcomes of this study contribute to the existing body of knowledge regarding anemia prevalence among female students based on reported symptoms. By implementing effective screening strategies and promoting awareness about anemia symptoms, educational institutions can play a crucial role in improving the overall health and academic performance of their students. Further research should focus on investigating the underlying causes of anemia among this population and evaluating the long-term impact of interventions on the prevalence and management of anemia. Such studies can provide additional evidence to guide targeted interventions and promote the well-being of female students.
