FOR MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS
ABOUT TOO LITTLE IRON
Iron deficiency with and without anemia are a key focus areas for Iron Disorders Institute.
For Medical Professionals
When changes in billing for Medicare occurred in the late 1990’s, iron tests (serum iron, total iron-binding capacity, and serum ferritin) were removed from routine biochemical panels. One consequence of this change was the loss of helpful information to medical providers about iron. It is well documented that Iron-Out-of-Balance™ contributes to multiple disease states and premature death. We estimate that one in three individuals have or will have an issue with iron imbalance at some point in time. As such, raising awareness and providing educational opportunities for practicing medical professionals. As such, raising awareness and providing educational opportunities for the public is critical to our vision and mission and critical to optimum patient care.” Herbert Bonkovsky, M.D., Founding member and Chairman, Iron Disorders Institute Scientific and Medical Advisory Board
Iron Disorders Institute (IDI) is not a medical facility; we are better described as a constellation of established clinicians, scientific researchers, and lay people with a high level of knowledge about iron who connect with individuals and their families using our publications. Iron Disorders Institute (IDI) efforts are especially devoted to the following iron disorders: hemochromatosis/iron overload, iron deficiency with and without anemia, dysmetabolic iron overload syndrome, and anemia of inflammatory response. Pradumna Phatak, M.D., Founding member and Co-Chairman, Iron Disorders Institute Scientific and Medical Advisory Board
