This protein is the major carrier of iron atoms in the blood. It tends to run high in iron deficiency and rather low when there's liver disease or bad longlasting infection. The percent of transferrin molecules ("saturation") that carry an iron atom is a good way of spotting iron deficiency or overload if the patient hasn't recently ...Read more
Can you explain my daughters blood test result serum 4(10-33) transferrin IBC 50 (45-70)transferrin saturation 8%(16-50) serum ferritin assay 60 (15-2?
Transferrin is a…: …blood plasma protein that delivers 2 iron ions from absorption centers to all tissues, especially for the production of hemoglobin. Low tf may be a liver defect (where it's made) or a kidney problem allowing excessive loss. Decreased plasma tf can lead to iron overload diseases such as hemosiderosis. Increased tf binds free iron, leading to anemia. Discuss lab results with your doc. ...Read more
My iron levels came back 21 low, transferrin 352.0 normal, tibc 492.8 high , saturation 4.3 % low . Would this be normal anemia?
Normal for females: Normal values for females are. Iron level 50to1170ug/dl.Tibc 250to370.Transferin saturation 15to50 percent.Your values look low normal but seem to me within normal range but you did not mention other values like hemoglobin which is important to know, if I have to guess it will be low normal and may meds to be followed. ...Read more
