Iron Binding Capacity
Not lacking iron: the protein put out by the liver to get iron into making blood is low. (transferrin). Can be due to no liver (cirrhosis). Much, much more likely due to a someone sick liver from old age or other chronic illness. Then the bone marrow doesn't get enough iron and doesn't make as much blood (ANEMIA OF CHRONIC DISEASE). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm a 27 year old male, my iron level is 70 ug/dl and total iron binding capacity 300 ug/dl. Am i iron deficient?
What could be the cause of low serum iron (16), but very normal iron binding capacity and ferritin. ?
Watch it: Lab reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. ...Read more
Recent lab work shows the following: iron 57 dl, total iron binding capacity 363 dl, iron total binding capacity 16% and ferritin 184.2ml. Pls explain?
Iron maybe needed: These laboratory results maybe consistent with iron deficiency. This deficiency maybe corrected with either oral or injectable iron preparations. However, it is even more important to figure out where the iron loss occured. The most common place with be the digestive system. Upper and lower endoscopies are commonly done for this type of investigation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Total iron binding capacity is high. Transferrin is high.Iron serum normal. Hemoglobin count low 12 any significance.Is it hemochromatosis?
Help!! What does it mean when you have low hemoglobin, low hemocrait, low mcv, low mch, low mchc high rdw, high iron binding capacity, low ferritin?
Help understanding what treatment is needed for the following test results:iron, total 166 normal, iron binding capacity, 231, low %saturation 72, high ferritin, 22, normal transferrin, 173, low?
No treatment: More information is needed. For example, are you anemic? If you are not anemic, a normal iron, and normal transferrin without an elevated TIBC does not indicate iron deficiency. If you are anemic, then these tests need to be repeated to look for other causes of your anemia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why does doctor need to test my serum iron, total iron binding capacity and transferrin saturation?
Iron testing: The three tests you mention, as well as a ferritin level, allow your doctor to determine how much iron you have available in both your blood stream and your body stores. The levels of these tests change in a characteristic fashion in iron deficiency anemia, anemia of chronic disease, and iron overload. ...Read more
