Okay, I got some additional tests at Morley’s suggestion. I’m going to make an appointment to discuss the results with him – like now – but I’m putting this out there in hopes that someone can tell me what the heck caused Request-a-Test to be so concerned. As in, they called me to make sure I got the results and she seemed concerned. She would not tell me what the results typically indicate; she just repeated twice that contact “my doctor” to discuss the results. I’m not looking for a diagnosis, just some basic info until I can get on the phone with Morley Robbins.
Iron Bind. Cap. (TIBC) 427 ug/dL
UIBC 401 ug/dL
Iron, Serum 26 ug/dL
Iron Saturation 6% (This is what caused the alarm, I think. It says “Alert” on my results.)
Ferritin, Serum 5 ng/mL
Transferrin 340 mg/dL
