Blood Iron Level Chart
Ferritin, hematocrit, hglobin normal. Hematocrit 44. Will iron increase it? Serum iron low. Rbc count normal and above.
Why do you ask?: This is almost certainly the right hematocrit for your body. No "pop" remedy is going to increase it; if you are seeking to raise it artificially for an athletic competition, you'll have to ask elsewhere. Loading up on iron is likely to make you sick, both acutely (upset stomach) and long-term (iron-overload still kills plenty of men). ...Read more
Recent labs showed high platelets high iron high tibc low normal ferritin level of 12 is this iron deficiency ?
Likely: The best test for iron deficiency anemia (ida) is ferritin. Sometimes when there is inflammation (an possible associated anemia of chronic disease/inflammation, the ferritin may increase as an acute phase reactant). The "gold standard" for diagnosis is a bone marrow biopsy, but rarely needed. High platelets are also associated with ida. Treatment should improve platelets and ferritin. ...Read more
I have iron deficiency anemia. Current bloodwork: Transferrin 379, iron 120, TIBC 565, iron saturation 21.2. Hgb 8.9, above results still anemia??
Yes indeed: Hemoglobin 8.9 is anemia, period. Please forgive my frankness. I hope that no one is forcing you to be a non-supplementing vegetarian. If you have blood loss, either monthly or from illness, I hope the source is discovered -- it could be ulcer, cancer, hookworm, etc. If you tolerate oral iron poorly, please consider an injectable form. Best wishes. ...Read more
What is the optimal serum ferritin level for hair health? Can heavy periods and/or a vegetarian diet w/inadequate iron intake cause low ferritin level
See below: Ferritin levels are not associated with hair health. Heavy periods and vegetarian diet could lead to iron deficiency, and low serum ferritin. It can be easily addressed by taking oral iron and multivitamins. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Yes, in general: If the iron level is low for long enough the hemoglobin will go down. So a normal hemoglobin level tells us that there is no significan iron deficiency...Yet you can have mild iron deficit yet have a normal hemoglobin. So it does not equate with iron levels exactly but more or less...So it is good, not a perfect substitute. ...Read more
Total iron binding capacity is high. Transferrin is high.Iron serum normal. Hemoglobin count low 12 any significance.Is it hemochromatosis?

Iron panel- UIBC: 109 (low), Iron serum: 170 (high), Iron saturation: 61% (high), TIBC: normal, Ferritin: 40 (normal). What can cause this?
May be normal: 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. Having said that, there does not seem to be anything extraordinary in your lab results. Generally it is a good idea to treat the person and not the lab results. ...Read more
Iron blood panel showed this: UIBC- 109 (low), Iron serum- 170 (high), Iron Saturation 63% (high). Is this hemochromatosis?
Suspicious: Further testing is necessary to definitively diagnose hemochromatosis. The elevated transferrin level makes it much more likely but the test should be repeated and you should have genetic testing for the C282Y gene. I suggest you see a hematologist or general internist for definitive testing. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
Low hemoglobin 9.7, hematocrit 30.7, mch24.9, platelets 419, uibc 390, iron , serum 17 iron saturation 4% what does this mean?
Iron deficiency : One with the above numbers has iron deficiency anemia. C doc, who'll ask questions in order to narrow down causes, then probably refer you for endoscopy, colonoscopy, +/-ct abd/pelvis, or +/- gyn, or +/- heme/onc depending on symptoms/ clinical findings, and most suspected cause for blood loss. This does not require emergency room visit, unless one is having acute blood loss(ex.Lo bp, black stool). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
High hemoglobin, high ferritin

2nd polycythemia: Secondary polycythemia can ce caused by different things like abnormality/mass on the liver, kidney, lungs problem, sleep apnea , drugs like testoserone etc. Also ferritin ca be elevated in the settings of inflammation, liver problems, infection etc. You need to get more evaluation like sleep study, imaging scan like ct scan to eval lung, liver, kidney. Discuss with your hematologist. ...Read more

'serum iron level' 26umol/l. 'saturation of iron binding cap '50%. %iron saturation 52%. 'serum ferritin level' 40ng /ml. What does it all mean.?
Normal iron status: The serum iron test measures iron in blood. Iron is bound to proteins in blood (mainly transferrin), so the % sat is proportion of iron binding proteins that carry iron. Ferritin is the amount of iron in reserve stores. In iron deficiency, iron and ferritin are low, transferrin is high, and % sat is low. ...Read more
My CBC shows low hemglobin of 10.5, mch, MCV and mchc low and RDW high
iron and tibc shows iron serum low 14 and iron saturation 5 alert

Iron def anemia: You have iron deficiency anemia-from your blood work provided. You need iron supplement-but most importantly to find out why you have iron deficiency anemia. Bleeding/blood loss- , malabsorption of iron in the stomach, or poor nutrition status/not enough intake of iron from the food could be the cause. Go to see your pmd and have more eval. If needed, referral to a hematologist can be done by pmd. ...Read more
