AbstractOur aim was to establish the reference values of the new parameter reticulocyte hemoglobin equivalent (RET-He) and to investigate its role in differentiating between iron deficiency anemia and anemia of chronic diseases. We found that RET-He was useful for diagnosing iron deficiency anemia. A cut-off point of 25 pg provided a specificity of 0.81 and a sensitivity of 0.76.
