[Diagnosis and treatment of iron deficiency without anaemia]
Iron deficiency (ID) without anaemia frequently remains undiagnosed when symptoms are attributed to ID with anaemia. Serum ferritin is the primary diagnostic parameter, whereas <10 microg/l, a cumulative dose of 1000 mg iron and at ferritin 10-30 microg/l, a cumulative dose of 500 mg is advised. At ferritin 30-50 microg/l a first dose of 200 mg might be considered. Ferritin shall be reassessed not sooner than 2 weeks after the last oral or 8-12 weeks after the last iv iron administration.
