Association between dietary iron intakes and quality of life measured with EuroQol VAS (EQ VAS%) in UC patients with quiescent disease (closed triangles and full black line) and matched ‘healthy’ controls (open circles and dashed black line). A, total dietary iron; B, haem iron; C, non-haem iron; D, fortificant iron. There were no significant slope deviations from zero (linear regression) for both UC patients and matched controls (p > 0.05, n = 34 per group).
