I am hoping to get some clarity here, as this is all new to me and I think my internet searches are making me crazy with nerves and fear!

I recently had bloodwork done. My dr recommended I see a hematologist based on results, but didn’t give me much to work on about why. My appt with the hematologist is not for another few weeks, and I am trying to research what anything means!

broken down:

TIBC- 264 (normal range)
UIBC- 117 (LOW)
Iron- 147 (normal)
Iron saturation- 55% (HIGH)

Hemoglobin- 4.7 (LOW)
Carbon dioxide- 19 (LOW)

Everything else, including thyroid and vitamin levels are all within normal range. The nurse who explained the results said it could be indicative of anemia. I did not realize there were several different types of anemia, but if it were something as simple as iron deficiency anemia, wouldn’t my dr just recommend iron supplements and a follow up visit? Getting nervous. Any help is appreciated!
