Haemoglobin mass in an anaemic female endurance runner before and after iron supplementation

Garvican, Laura A.; Lobigs, Louisa; Telford, Richard; Fallon, Kieran; Gore, Christopher

Description

Haemoglobin mass in a female endurance athlete was measured via carbon monoxide rebreathing upon diagnosis of iron-deficiency anemia (haemoglobin concentration = 8.8 g/dL, ferritin = 9.9 ng/mL) and regularly during treatment thereafter. Haemoglobin mass increased by 49% in the 2 wk following an intramuscular iron injection and continued to increase with oral iron supplementation for 15 wk. The presented case illustrates that haemoglobin mass is readily responsive to iron supplementation in a...[Show more]
