CPEU Course Description
Iron deficiency is the most prevalent single nutrient problem and the most common cause of anemia. Since obesity has been reported to be associated with iron deficiency, this CPEU course investigates whether body adiposity is associated with altered hepatic iron status by comparing liver iron levels and markers involved in inflammation and iron absorption in obese, control, and mildly calorie restricted mice.
Brooke H. Dekofsky, MPH, RD, CLE, CDE was involved in the creation of this course.
