 The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of menstruation, method of contraception, and iron supplementation on iron status in young Danish women, and to assess whether iron deficiency could be predicted from the pattern of menstruation. Iron status was examined by measuring serum (S-) ferritin and hemoglobin (Hb) in 268 randomly selected,(More)
The object was to analyze, in a nationwide survey, the incidence and course of hereditary hemochromatosis in relation to the degree of iron overload and the presence of organ damage. The study included 179 Danish Caucasian patients with clinically overt hemochromatosis diagnosed between 1948 and 1985. A cohort of 158 patients was followed for a median of(More)
 Iron status, S-ferritin, and hemoglobin (Hb) were assessed in a population survey in 1994 (DAN-MONICA 10) comprising 1332 Caucasian Danish men equally distributed in age cohorts of 40, 50, 60 and 70 years. Blood donors (n=186) had lower S-ferritin, median 76 μg/l, than nondonors, median 169 μg/l (p<0.0001). S-ferritin in donors was inversely correlated(More)
 Iron status, i.e. serum ferritin and haemoglobin (Hb) levels, was assessed in a population survey in 1994 (Dan-Monica 10) comprising 1319 Caucasian Danish women in age cohorts of 40, 50, 60 and 70 years. In the entire series, ferritin levels increased significantly from 40 years to 60 years of age. The prevalence of small iron stores (ferritin 16–32 μg/l),(More)
Le but de cette étude rétrospective était d’évaluer la relation entre le rendement diagnostique global de la broncho-fibroscopie (BF) et la taille, l’aspect des bords et la localisation de lésions pulmonaires circonscrites sur des radiographies thoraciques standard. Cent neuf patients consécutifs, 69 hommes et 40 femmes, d’âge moyen 63 ans, avec des lésions(More)
