In brief: Need a few more #'s

The decision to undergo iron infusion in iron deficiency largely depends on hemoglobin concentration, physical symptoms and etiology for low iron.
Serum ferretin is a better indicator of iron stores than serum iron. The high TIBC can be seen in commonly seen in iron deficiency, but would also see a low iron saturation.
