Iron deficiency is known to be among the commonest nutritional deficiency states worldwide, with physical sequelae and symptoms depending on duration and severity. Although countries with chronic malnutrition have a high prevalence of iron-deficiency anemia (50%-80%), iron-deficiency states without anemia are frequently found in countries with normal nutrition (prevalence up to 20%).1 Successful iron therapy depends, on one hand, on correct diagnosis and, on the other, on the choice of effective iron formulations and treatment of the cause. Women naturally have a much higher prevalence of iron deficiency than do men. Women with regular periods have a prevalence of iron deficiency that is about 10 times higher than do men of the same age. Additionally, it can be shown that among blood donors it is nearly always women who have absent iron stores. The reason for this is regular blood or iron loss during menstruation with concomitant insufficient intake .
