The diagnostic algorithm [1] reflects a contemporary morphological approach to anaemia utilising the reticulocyte response and mean corpuscular volume (MCV) as the starting point for evaluation.
Today it is thought that it takes a minimum altitude of 2100-2500m with a certain intensity and duration of training to initiate a measurable reticulocyte response (2,5,8).
Results: The reticulocyte response at 1 week time was significantly more with intramuscular iron as compared to oral iron.
