Low Iron Count In Children
Define low: After somewhat elevated hemoglobin levels around birth, infants grow faster than their blood is produced & have relatively low hemoglobin levels in infancy and childhood when compared to teen or adult values. The expected hemoglobin values vary by age and gender.If really low, it most often reflects nutritional deficiency , specifically for iron, but could also be due to losses. ...Read more
High iron serum-167, low ferritin-113.Cbc&cmp normal.Symptoms:fatigue and mild anxiety.Are symptoms of iron overload possible with low iron 'storage'?
MCHC: MCHC=mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration This value is a calculated value of hemoglobin per red cell. In iron deficiency the body has difficulty making enough hemoglobin, and the resultant cells are both small and low on hgb. The defect with PA is not with hgb synthesis but with cell replication and nuclear maturation, so the amount of hgb/cell is unaffected. ...Read more
Dad has very low iron in blood but very high ferritin due to MDS & transfusions. He is taking exjade. Does not low iron reduce his RBC production?
HFE mutation with low *6.7* ferritin and 61% sat. Do I need high sats AND high ferritin for iron deposits in body? Concern for low ferritin? Thanks!
Can be Iron def: Hemochromatosis results in increased iron absorption from diet. But it will not stop iron deficiency if you are losing iron/blood such as menstruation or pregnancy. Low ferritin says iron stores are low. High transferrin sat says you absorb excess iron from what you eat. Women with homozygous HC get organ damage about a decade later than men for this reason. If you are anemic take (!) iron briefly ...Read more
Which one?: Without knowing that, it is difficult to provide a very helpful answer. High platelets can result for a number of different stressors and is not usually cause for alarm.

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

What can cause raised red cell count but with low iron stores (anemia). White cell count is at lowest end of normal lab value?
Lots of things: First of all, "anemia" and "low iron stores" are two completely different labs. Anyone who rod you otherwise is making a common mistake. In thalassemia minor, red cells are small and their count maybe high despite a mild anemia. Insist on a complete answer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
