Abstract [en]

Objectives: The aim was to study the influence of sampling time, food intake and sleep on tests used to screen for and monitor conditions of iron deficiency and overload. Design and methods: The 24 h variations of iron, transferrin, transferrin saturation (TS) and ferritin were studied in seven healthy individuals during standardised food intake, and during night or day sleep. Results: Iron and TS showed clear diurnal variations, with peaks at 12.6 h and 12.8 h respectively, during night sleep, and at 19.7 h and 19.3 h, respectively, during day sleep. Ferritin did not demonstrate any circadian variation. Transferrin and ferritin were unaffected by sleep-condition. Meals did not have any effect except a slight decline of transferrin. Conclusions: Time of day and sleeping patterns had great influence on iron and TS, whereas no or only minor effects are seen on the concentration of ferritin and transferrin. Meals have limited effects. (C) 2010 The Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists.
