Abstract

The long-term decay rate of serum ferritin post-iron infusion in athletic populations is currently unknown. Here, we modelled the decay rate of serum ferritin in female athletes after an intravenous iron infusion (n = 22). The post-infusion serum ferritin response and the rate of decay was highly variable between athletes; however, we demonstrate that follow-up blood testing at 1 (154 μg/L; 77–300 μg/L) and 6 months (107 μg/L; 54–208 μg/L) post-infusion is appropriate to observe treatment efficacy and effectiveness.
