Reference values

First, we determined age- and sex-stratified reference ranges of serum hepcidin-25 concentration in a large, well-phenotyped, sample of the general population (n = 2998), and defined the reference [hepcidin/ferritin] and [transferrin saturation/hepcidin] ratios, which are important for the clinical interpretation of measured hepcidin concentrations.

Second, reference ranges of serum hepcidin-25 concentration and [hepcidin/ferritin] ratio were determined in a population of healthy children, aged 6 months to 3 years old.

Third, we defined reference ranges for serum hepcidin-25 in specified time periods during pregnancy.
