What is a good iron level for a woman?

What is a good iron level for a woman?

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 more

What causes mildly elevated iron levels in 33 year old woman?

Need more info: 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, it would have helped to have the actual results. Was it serum iron or ferritin and what was or were the values?

Not to worry: In some labs that would be a normal range. Low ferritin means you're low on iron. Since you been getting iron treatment your new ferritin level probably indicates it's time to back off or slow down. Hi ferritin can be from inflammation or too much iron or if it's chronic hemachromatosis. Which since you've had low iron wouldn't be the case. Good health Read more

How long does it take for iron levels to go back to normal when adding more to your diet?

Dietary: Iron really will not have much of an effect on Iron Stores or Blood levels by itself.... Supplemental Iron is the best way to increase the body's Iron Supply!

I hope this answers your question. I assume you have a low iron level and want to "normalize" it "naturally"

Hope this is helpful

My iron levels doubled in 1 week - from 8 to 16micromol/l. What could be the cause of this? Hb levels are within normal.

My iron levels doubled in 1 week - from 8 to 16micromol/l. What could be the cause of this? Hb levels are within normal.

Increased absorption: Iron control is mediated by absorption and secretion, with iron used most frequently in red blood cell metabolism and liver breakdown (heme is broken down by the liver into bilirubin). So, increased iron may just be related to changes in metabolism of blood or liver function. Read more
