Iron FS

Product Number : 1 1911


Iron exists in the body as a component of hemoglobin and myoglobin and is bound to transferrin for transport in plasma and stored in ferritin. Increased iron concentration occurs in hemochromatosis and liver damage. Malabsorption is a digestive disease that can cause a decrease in iron levels, and thus can cause anemia. Blood loss after gastrointestinal lesions or heavy menstrual bleeding can cause anemia as well.
