In a study of 22 patients receiving total parenteral nutrition (TPN), we found that iron-deficient patients were less likely to develop cholestasis than patients with normal iron stores. The mean and S.D. of serum iron, total iron binding capacity and percent saturation in the 12 patients developing cholestasis were 12.7 +/- 5.2 micromol/L, 37.1 +/- 8.5… (More)
