Postmenopausal women are at increased risk of CVD: the increased serum ferritin level may be involved in the pathogenesis. The aim of the present study is to investigate the relationship of ferritin and carotid atherosclerosis in postmenopausal women. A total of 1178 postmenopausal women (mean age, 60·8 years) were enrolled from the Changfeng Study. A standard interview, anthropometric measurements and laboratory analyses were performed for each participant. Bilateral CIMT (carotid intima–media… 

Increased serum ferritin levels are independently associated with carotid atherosclerosis in women

The study demonstrated that increased serum ferritin levels are independently associated with IMT and carotid plaques in Asian women but not in Asian men.

Association of serum ferritin with metabolic syndrome in eight cities in China

A positive association between elevated SF and MetS and its components including hypertriglyceridemia and elevated glucose was found in multivariate analyses among men, and SF levels are independently associated with IR.

Does resistance training have an effect on levels of ferritin and atherogenic lipids in postmenopausal women? – A pilot trial

It is suggested that RT in postmenopausal women both reduces levels of ferritin and counteracts atherogenic lipid profiles independent of an apparent oxidative mechanism.

Low Serum Iron Status Is Associated With Low Incidence of Coronary Artery Disease In Women

Low Serum level of iron, UIBC, TIBC and ferritin levels were found to have a protective role for CAD in women, but not in men, and Elevated serumferritin is independently and positively associated with CAD in men and women.

Association between iron status and incident coronary artery disease: a population based-cohort study

Increased serum level of iron and TIBC levels were found to have a protective role for CAD in women, but not in men, and Elevated serum ferritin is independently and positively associated with CAD in men and women.

Silencing ferritin alleviates atherosclerosis in mice via regulating the expression levels of matrix metalloproteinases and interleukins.

This work demonstrates that ferritin can regulate the progress of atherosclerosis via regulating the expression levels of MMPs and interleukins and is, therefore, worth being further investigated as a potential therapeutic approach for this disease.

Vitamin B12 Deficiency Is Prevalent Among Czech Vegans Who Do Not Use Vitamin B12 Supplements

Cobalamin deficiency risk depends on supplementation status and not on the duration of an exclusive vegan diet, which underlines the need to integrate cobalamin status monitoring and counselling on supplement use in routine clinical care in the Czech Republic.

Relationship between the Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate and the Urine Microalbumin/Creatinine Ratio and Ferritin in Korean Adults

본 연구는 대한민국 성인에서 eGFR 및 uACR과 Ferritin의 관련성에 대한 연구이다. 2012년 국민건강영양조사자료에서 20세 이상의 4,948명을 대상으로 관련변수를 보정한 후, 만성신장질환(CKD, eGFR<60 mL/min/1.73 m2) 및 알부민뇨(uACR≥30 mg/g)에 따른 페리틴 수준을 분석하였다. 만성신장질환군의 ferritin



Is Serum Ferritin an Additional Cardiovascular Risk Factor for All Postmenopausal Women?

Early menopause is not associated with blood iron overload and CVD risk factor in an important proportion of women, and both ferritin and tHcy were found to be linked to serum cholesterol.

Association Between High Serum Ferritin Levels and Carotid Atherosclerosis in the Study of Health in Pomerania (SHIP)

A relationship between serum ferritin levels and carotid atherosclerosis that was potentiated by LDL cholesterol was identified, adding support to the hypothesis of a link between iron and cardiovascular disease.

Serum Ferritin Is a Risk Factor for Stroke in Postmenopausal Women

Higher serum ferritin concentrations in postmenopausal women are associated with an increased risk of ischemic stroke, but neither serum iron nor transferrin saturation was associated with a increased stroke risk.

Relation between Body Iron Status and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Patients with Cardiovascular Disease

This study indicated an association between a positive balance of body iron and CVD, so caution should be exercised in administration of iron supplements to patients with CVD and in consumption of food rich in iron by them.

Metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and the inflammation markers C-reactive protein and ferritin

MS and insulin resistance are associated with elevated serum CRP and ferritin, and evaluation of subclinical chronic inflammation in patients with MS and/or insulin resistance by determination of these markers might aid in their evaluation as candidates for aggressive intervention against cardiovascular risk factors.

Association of oxidative stress, iron, and centralized fat mass in healthy postmenopausal women.

It is suggested that reducing centralized fat mass and maintaining a favorable lipid profile, antioxidant status, and iron status all may be important in protecting postmenopausal women from atherosclerotic CVD.

Ferritin concentrations, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes in middle-aged and elderly chinese.

Elevated circulating ferritin concentrations were associated with higher risk of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome in middle-aged and elderly Chinese independent of obesity, inflammation, adipokines, and other risk factors.

Non–Transferrin-Bound Iron and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease in Postmenopausal Women

The results show no excess risk of CHD or AMI within the highest NTBI tertile compared with the lowest but rather seem to demonstrate a decreased risk.
