Range 30-150: Actual normal iron level is between 30-150, or 50-170, depending on the lab, for an average healthy woman. Men tend to have higher average because they don't incur the monthly menstrual loss (i know it is not fair :-)). This is typically not measured unless you are anemic. Usually hemoglobin is measured and normal is 12.1-15.1 for females, tad-bit higher for the guys. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What really matters: What you really want to ask is: how well does my body while pregnant break down carbohydrates (sugar)? This is routinely tested during 24 to 28 weeks of pregnancy, when women drink a defined amount of glucose (e.g., 50 grams) and then have their glucose level taken an hour later.

I hope this helps. ...Read more

When?: Depends on when during her cycle it is measured. Prior to ovulation levels are low, typically less than 1 to 2 ng/ml. Soon after ovulation levels will be greater than 2 ng/ml and up to 25, 30 or more.

What is considered a normal oxygen saturation for a person with COPD and why is it considered normal?
Anything above 90%: > or equal to 90% is normal. This is related to the hemoglobin oxygen dissociation curve. There is a certain percentage of oxygen saturation before your cells will not let oxygen leave cell and go to tissue. That is somewhere around 88-92% so since the sensors are good only 90% + or - 2% points, we use 90%. ...Read more
