Would these results be a case to donate blood?
Now I have accurate iron panel – would these results be a case to donate blood?
Ferritin – 155 μg/L;ng/mL (optimal 20-50)
S-Iron – 15 μmol/L (optimal 18)
TIBC – 53 μmol/L (optimal 51)
Transferrin saturation – 28%
This is the first time ferritin is so low – and still I have been supplementing with iron for the past couple of months (recommended by a nutritionist I’ve been to see)!? Really I cannot figure this out at all!
I have this nasty inflammation I have been trying to get rid of. Not succeeding. Its getting wrose so I thought my levels would have been MUCH vorse.
