Iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) negatively impacts oxygen transport and maximal aerobic capacity (VO2 max). Iron deficiency non-anaemia (IDNA) is often observed amongst endurance athletes, yet the influence of IDNA on iron metabolism and endurance performance is not clear. The aim of this thesis was to investigate physiological and haematological responses to changes in iron status in elite endurance athletes.
