Summary Iron deficiency is the most common single-nutrient deficiency in the world, affecting over a billion individuals in both industrialised and economically developing countries (McLean et al. 2009). Three successive stages of iron deficiency are generally recognised: iron depletion; iron-deficient crythropoiesis and iron-deficiency anaemia.
