can i still exercise is this serious?
Talk to your doctor: You are quite iron deficient but your hemoglobin/hematocrit are not critically low. You can probably exercise, though you may tire more easily. If you have heart disease or lung disease you should probably not exercise until this is corrected, but your doctor is the person who can tell you best whether exercise is safe for you or not. ...Read more
Hgb 14.3, low MCV 68.7, MCH 20.9, mchc 30.4 , normal total iron 149, serum ferritin 133, tibc 351, transferrin 42% what does this result mean? Plz help
Blood count result: Basically everything you mention is normal except the MCV of 68.7. Mcv is a measure of the size of your red cells, and 68.7 means they are smaller than normal. Low iron is a common reason, but your iron results are normal. Follow-up with your doctor to discuss, but one thing to consider would be to get tested for a possible haemoglobin defect such as thalassemia. ...Read more
Female.Age-38 hb was 4 in may 2012. Now 7.5.Serum folate >40.Tibc-460. Wbc-11100. Problem -pain in lage and breathing problem.What is your suggation.
I assume you meant: Legs, not lage. A hb 4, not good. Even 7.5 is still low. She still needs to be on iron replacement and the source of blood loss remedied. She is likely short of breath because of decreased ability to carry oxygen, same with the legs. If still symptomatic you could consider a transfusion, even 1 unit would help. Needs to be at 9 or 10 for symptom relief which is still low, norm around 12-14. ...Read more
CBP, ESR, Serum Iron, TIBC and identified
RBC Morphology : Microcytic- Hypochromic smear seen, Anisocytosis-Poikilocytosis. what test covers etiology?
Hgb 11.0, MCV 77.6, MCH 23.8, mchc 30.6, RDW 17.9, ferritin level 17.2, folate 5.03, iron serum 42, tibc 441, iron saturation 10. What does this mean?
Any symptoms?: Why did your doc order those tests? Are you feeling tired? Do you have really heavy periods? The hemoglobin is a little low, but not severely low. You are a little iron deficient. You may benefit from taking iron and a stool softener if you don't get enough in your diet. But talk to your doc who ordered the tests, they may have more info. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What might cause hyperthyroid, high anti-centromere b antibodies, enlarged red blood cells and high iron saturation, normal serum iron, low TIBC/UIBC?
THIS IS A "LONGSHOT": but this set of symptoms (SYNDROME) sound like HASHIMOTO's THYROIDITIS and PERNICIOUS Macrocytic anemia also may be AUTO-IMMUNE!!! in nature ie: the body falsely detects NORMAL TISSUE as being "FOREIGN" and develops auto-antibodies against (in this case) your thyroid gland and your bone marrow) This is a guess....just a "thought"..hope it helps!

My serum iron is high at 178 (40-150) and TIBC is high normal at 439 (261-478). Sometimes both are high. What causes this?
My Serum Ferritin is: 7,7umol/L (ref:9-26) & TIBC is 10 umol/L (43-86). Should the TIBC not be high as i have low iron?What could cause it to be low?
Agreed: Based on a low Ferritin and Iron I too would expect a high TIBC. However, tests are not always in agreement with logic. On face value it would appear you are iron deficient, however I do not know you blood counts and several other labs. Please return to your physician to discuss, as this will help you better understand what is going on. Good luck!! ...Read more
Help me interpret &health implications
iron binding (tibc). 455. High.
Uibc 430. High.
Iron serum. 25 low.
Iron saturation 5 alert.
TIBC: (tibc)iron deficiency will translate into a high total iron binding capacity( i.E: there is more space available for more iron to bind to), uibc is calculated by substracting level of iron from TIBC ( 455-25= 430), transferrin is used to transport iron, 5% saturation means only 5% of transferrin is used to bind iron, because there is not enough iron for it to bind to, (iron deficiency anemia). ...Read more
I have hemoglobin 10.6 (low).I have iron serum of 25 micrograms.dl. Unsaturated IBC 358 High, Total TIBC 383(normal) and % iron sat 7%. mean?
Unhealthy: You cannot expect us to give you any valid interpretation of labs when you only provide a few results. Your labs that you have shared represent that you are not a very healthy human. Your medical care and the interpretation of your labs should be urgently handled in person by the professional caring for you.
