Background: Abnormal homeostasis of iron such as deficiency or overload is associated with the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

This study aimed to eva¬luate the effect of adding anthropometric indices to a model based on iron status as risk factors of CVD. Methods: This cross-sectional study included 140 adult women aged 18-50 years randomly se¬lected...
