BACKGROUND The prevalence of iron deficiency in the Lebanese pediatric population is unknown. The aim of this study is to estimate this prevalence in Lebanese schoolchildren and to assess the relation between iron status and related factors. SUBJECTS/METHODS A total of 903 children aged 8-18 years (466 boys and 437 girls) were included in the study. Recruitment was done from ten schools with different SES levels and located in the Great Beirut and Mount Lebanon areas. Serum ferritin was measured in all participants and testosterone was measured only in boys using Immulite chemiluminescent assays. RESULTS For the entire sample, the median serum ferritin concentration was 30.0 [19.8-44.8] ng/mL and the prevalence of iron deficiency (ferritin < 15 ng/mL) was 14.2%. Iron deficiency was higher in girls compared with boys (respectively, 20.8% and 7.9%). This prevalence varied with the SES (respectively, 11.6%, 11.9%, and 16.8% in high, middle, and low SES, p = 0.09). Iron deficiency increased with age (9.5%, 15.7%, and 17.5%, respectively, for the age groups 8-11, 12-14, and 15-18, p = 0.014) and did not differ between normal, overweight, and obese groups (p = 0.07). In boys, a significant positive correlation was observed between ferritin and total testosterone (rho = 0.150, p = 0.001). CONCLUSION The prevalence of iron deficiency is relatively low in Lebanon. Younger boys, menstruating girls, and children from low SES are more prone to iron deficiency, while BMI has no impact.
