Blood Test Iron Levels
I had a blood test for iron, levels were near the lower limit. I had two other blood tests 2 and 7 weeks before this one. Could they have affected it?
I took a blood test for iron levels, thyroid, hemaglobin, and vitmain d. Will THC (weed) show up? And if does will they tell my mom? I'm 16
No, and no: Your physician has no interest in determining whether you are smoking weed like many (most?) other kids. Your blood won't be tested and it would be illegal as you haven't consented; drug treatment is also confidential without your folks finding out should you need it. Please don't try any of the other illegal drugs, avoid alcohol ; tobacco, and don't drive if you're stoned. Best wishes. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi. I had my blood test recently and the iron level came with the range of 2. What does that mean? Can this cause me a further problems? Any concern?
Clarify: Is this a serum iron level substantially below the reference range? Are you also anemic? Is your total iron binding capacity up? If you are iron deficient, you must demand to know why. Are you a non-supplementing vegetarian? Do you have heavy menstrual losses? Have you been checked for a bleeding ulcer / possible cancer? The situation is VERY serious and you need to be proactive & informed. Read more
My iron levels from a recent blood test register 42 ug/dl and 11.3 % saturation. Is this abnormally low or is this serious for someone my age (28)?
19yo F, 5"1 125lb. Had blood test bc dr suspected low iron. Turns out my iron levels are actually beyond high, way too high. What this mean? Treatments?
I had a blood test a few months ago and blood cell count was normal but on the lower side so my dr gave me iron tablets and now my blood tests are excellent how do I maintain good iron levels?
Were you anemic?: Do you have heavy periods> Were you iron deficient? Some people require iron supplements but most get by with good sources of bioavailable iron, mostly meats, unless they have a cause for iron loss, i.e. gi bleed, woman with heavy menses, exfoliative dermatitis, etc. First confirm it is indeed iron deficiency, secondly treat appropriately.

7year old son blood test. WCC 11.8 platelets 421 and Abs Neutrophils 7.5. No symptoms just a routine blood tests while checking iron levels.?
Unclear question: 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 is nothing to be concerned about in the information you provided. The platelet count is high, but that in itself is not a bid deal. Read more
A recent blood test indicated iron at 176 mcg/dl (where normal is 45-170). I am having a followup test, but I'm wondering if this level is dangerous?
Not "dangerous": Advice: doctors treat patients and not numbers. A slightly elevated iron level without the clinical context, is like a fish out of water. More info is needed for context-Why was the test done in the first place? Were you on iron supplementation? The iron level mentioned can be concerning in the context of iron overload, but being 6 pt over the upper limit of normal is not considered dangerous. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anemia is Lo Hemoglo: You need to tell us about your Hemoglobin (Hb) level. That is what defines Anemia.... a level below 12 Grams in a woman equals anemia. Then you need to ask your doctor to find the cause and treat the cause, which is often excessive blood loss either thru menses or from another source. That is why you need to be checked thoroughly. Iron levels will help in defining the cause which is often Iron defi Read more
