Iron-regulatory protein hepcidin is increased in female athletes after a marathon

Abstract

The propose of this study was to determine the influence of marathon race on hepcidin excretion in female athletes (age 26–45 years). Urine samples were taken before, immediately after, 1 and 3 days after the race. In the average, hepcidin transiently increased at day 1 from 32 to 85 ng/mg creatinine. We propose that the frequently observed iron deficiency… (More)
