I have low ferretin (11) and the nurse said that my saturation is low. What does it mean? I know what ferretin is and that mine is low, I'm just not sure what low saturation means? Anyone know?

There are certain things/sites/something that the iron binds to. When they look at this inthe lab, these things should be fully saturated with iron. When it is not, you have low saturation.

I also have a low ferritin and low iron saturation--they go hand in hand.
