Abstract

Disorders of iron metabolism are frequently encountered in gastroenterology practice and include deficiency or excess. The limited intestinal uptake of iron slows response in deficiency, and no pathway exists for excretion in overload states. This article reviews iron disorders commonly seen in GI practice, describing common clinical tools for diagnosis and treatment.
