A member asked:

What does it mean when your ferritin is 944 (high), iron sat 9 (low), iron 27 (borderline low), tibc 316 (normal); hemoglobin/hematocrit 9.7/29.2 (low), rbc 3.17 (low), platelets 534 (high)? my haptoglobin was also high, retic count high but ldh low?

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that,your data suggests inflammation and iron deficiency. The high ferritin is a marker for inflammation as is high platelet count, Wish you good health!
