Abstract: This study aims at setting up reference values for serum hepcidin concentrations in healthy pediatric population by using a well-established laboratory kit. The difference in hepcidin concentrations in older children could be attributed to different growth rates. Additionally, differences between values in adults and children could reflect alterations in iron metabolism between those two age groups.
