Anemia is not infrequently found in diabetic patients. In addition, Rosen and Tullis (JAMA 195: 261, 1966) have reported abnormally low deferoxamine chelation values in nonanemic diabetic patients suggesting that there is a defect in iron metabolism associated with this disease. The erythrokinetics in 42 non-iron-deficient diabetic patients were therefore studied. These 42 patients included about 17 without anemia or clinical evidence of renal disease, 11 with anemia but without renal disease, and 14 with both anemia and renal disease. Although there is some overlapping of values for individual patients in the 3 groups, each group has a combination of
