Letter to the Editor
I wonder if the authors of the article on iron deficiency could clarify when oral iron supplements should be taken.1 The article advises taking them without food, but the iron supplement packs (and AusDi) advise taking them with food.
The Editorial Executive Committee welcomes letters, which should be less than 250 words. Before a decision to publish is made, letters which refer to a published article may be sent to the author for a response. Any letter may be sent to an expert for comment. When letters are published, they are usually accompanied in the same issue by their responses or comments. The Committee screens out discourteous, inaccurate or libellous statements. The letters are sub-edited before publication. Authors are required to declare any conflicts of interest. The Committee's decision on publication is final.
