    Physiological and Inflammatory Markers Alteration in Obesity-Related Iron Deficiency in Adults
    Author(s): Brwa Zahir, Kaniaw R. Khafar* and Mariwan A. Hama Salih

    Homeostasis of iron, an essential micronutrient, is crucial to many physiological functions in the human body, such as cellular activity, erythropoiesis, and innate immunological response. So Iron deficiency anemia may occur from obesity's ability to disturb iron homeostasis. Increased hepcidin levels caused by chronic inflammation may be the cause of the link between obesity and iron insufficiency. This study aimed to investigate the associations between iron parameters, hepcidin, and inflammation markers in obese adults. For this cause, this current experiment is designed to investigate the iron profile and some hematological and inflammatory parameters in adults in Kurdistan region-Iraq. The cross-sectional study was designed within the setting of a medium private laboratory with participants being common people involved, two hundred adults were participated in this study and a..
