Iron status in a population of Spanish schoolchildren.
Iron status was assessed in a population of 196 schoolchildren and adolescents divided into three age groups : 6-7 years (n=60), 10-12 years (n=63) and 13-15 years (n=73).
All subjects were from the Yelez-Malaga area (province of Malaga) in southern Spain.
Nutrient intakes and biochemical parameters related with iron status (number of red cells, hematocrit, hemoglobin, serum iron concentration, total iron-binding capacity and transferrin saturation) were measured.
The results showed a lack of correlation between the nutrient intake and biochemical findings.
