Relation of Hepatic Iron Storage to Body Adiposity and Hepatic Inflammation
Relation of Hepatic Iron Storage to Body Adiposity and Hepatic Inflammation is organized by EdCompass.
• CE Credit Hours: 1.00 CPEUs
CPEU Course Description:
Iron deficiency is the most prevalent single nutrient problem and the most common cause of anemia. Since obesity has been reported to be associated with iron deficiency, this CPEU course investigates whether body adiposity is associated with altered hepatic iron status by comparing liver iron levels and markers involved in inflammation and iron absorption in obese, control, and mildly calorie restricted mice.
CPEU Course Objectives:
• Explain how obesity, inflammation, and iron deficiency are related.
• Identify the situation in which a higher iron consumption leads to lower iron levels.
• Name the central regulator of iron homeostasis.
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
