In brief: Iron level in man
In an adult male, the normal range for iron (fe) is 65 - 175 µg/dl (11.
7 - 31.5 µmol/l in si units [µ=micro as in µg microgram or µmol micromole]. Other factors need to be considered as well: total iron binding capacity (tibc; n=250-420 µg/dl); serum ferritin level (n=20-250 ng/ml), and transferrin saturation index (= fe/tibc x 100).
