I have my pinprick test results back and was firstly quite surprised to see my ferritin at 48.16 ug/l as it was only 26 at my Dr's a couple of weeks ago and this was just after having a water infection for few weeks, so I actually expected it to be lower on this test as i know ferritin can be raised during infections.Do you think it could rise that much in such a short time, without supplementing, it usually takes much longer?
The results are as follows
Iron 24.19 (6.6-26.0 umol/l)
TIBC 115.49 (41-77 umol/l)
Ferritin 48.16 (13.00-150.00)
Transferrin saturation 20.95 (20.00-55.00%)
Does anyone have an idea of why the TIBC could be raised please?
I've had low ferritin and vit d in the past and diagnosed with functional b12 def. 6 months ago, as well as tsh of 6.28 in July and told to retest in 6 months. Wasn't sure whether this is a thyroid or b12 question, but seeing as I'm having treatment for b12 wondered if this might be linked to an imminent thyroid problem.
Any ideas really appreciated thanks.
