Iron Toxicity Post #22: There is a difference between ‘Iron Deficiency and ‘Iron Dysregulation’!

Calling all those lost in iatrogenic-induced iron anemia.

Please take note of this critical study:

Matak, P., et al. (2013). “Copper deficiency leads to anemia, duodenal hypoxia, upregulation of HIF-2a and altered expression of iron absorption genes in mice.”
https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article/file?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0059538&type=printable

Now, granted, this is not the easiest article to read, but it puts the spotlight on the truth.

Iron metabolism is ruled and regulated by copper status; not iron status and certainly not ferritin status!

As I’ve stated ad nauseum, there is a huge difference between “Iron deficiency” (very rare) and “Iron dysregulation” (very common). It’s time we all learn this fact about iron and copper metabolism. 

I would like to ask the following:

1. Please take a moment to review the abstract, the introduction and the conclusion.  This should rattle your cage about the profound relationship between copper <> iron. This is not a user-friendly article, but the pearls abound in this study.

2. Insist that your favorite practitioner read this study from stem to stern. (I would suggest you ask for a summary of their understanding.)

3) Insist that you get the full Monty Iron Panel — that focuses on copper.  Learn the truth of your likely iron dysregulation issue.

4) Based on the above, I’d recommend you re-think your supplement and medication regime.

5) And finally, based on the results, you might want to pursue increasing your Cp (ceruloplasmin) with a vengeance.

Hope you all find this instructive, helpful & healthful.

A votre sante!
