Dosage Range

• Therapeutic dose: 2-5 mg/kg/day; however, in many cases the equivalent of this dose may be given weekly.

• In cases of deficiency, initial effects on haemoglobin and erythrocyte concentrations take about 2 weeks but it may take 6-12 months to build iron stores (Groff & Gropper 2000).

• The Australian Iron Status Advisory Panel advocates dietary intervention as the first treatment option for mild iron deficiency (serum ferritin 10-15 /ig/L) (Patterson et al 2001). Trials have shown a significant increase in serum ferritin levels (26%) using dietary intervention alone (Heath et al 2001).
