I had a blood test at the docs about a month ago and it showed my ferritin to be 53 (13 - 150) and my haemoglobin was 124 (115 - 160).
I have just had a fingerprint iron panel done with a private online company (not sure if I can use names) and these were the results:
Fe 69.52 (13 - 150)
Tibc 44.87 ( 41 - 77)
Transferrin saturation % 59.88 (23 - 55)
Iron 26.87 (6.6 - 26.0)
I'm a little confused as to what this all means and if anyone can help I'd appreciate it. I'm also confused at the big difference between docs test and private test as they were only a month apart and I hadn't really been supplementing (bearing in mind it's taken me 1.5 yrs of solid supplementing to raise my Fe 20pts).
Many thanks in advance
