Figure 5: Effect of increased hepcidin level after the first oral iron intake on the second iron intake. (a) The rats were given a second 10-mg dose of ferric citrate at 2, 3, or 6 h after the first iron intake (n = 5 rats in each group). *(b) Significantly differs from the first 2-h oral iron absorption test (2-h oral iron absorption test) result (8:00 am; P < 0.05)
