Little is known about renal function in children with iron deficiency anemia. The purpose of this study was to investigate renal tubular function in these children.

Mean fractional excretion of sodium and mean urinary N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase/creatinine were significantly higher in the children… CONTINUE READING
