Dietary iron intake, body iron stores, and the risk of type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

BMC Med 2012;10:119.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

Excess iron has been shown to induce diabetes in animal models. However, the results from human epidemiologic studies linking body iron stores and iron intake to the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are conflicting. In this study, we aimed to systematically evaluate the available evidence for associations between iron intake, body iron stores, and the risk of T2DM.
