I have received a test result of 14.5 for iron saturation. I have recently started to lose a lot of hair, have been extremely tired on occasion and have low grade headache and body aches. What should be done next?
The tests that I get are; Iron Package: Serum Iron, UIBC, TIBC and %Sat.

B-12 and Folate, Ferritin, and a standard CBC. That's the most of it, my Hematologist runs more.

It needs to be determined IF you are anemic/and or a low ferritin. This may be the reason for hair loss and tiredness. If so, then next, you will need to see a Gi doc for a check up and further testing to rule out Blood loss or another cause of low iron. It is not usual for a male to have anemia. Keep us posted.

Wow. I just found this board and was reading your iron saturation level. Now I"m really scared. My daughter just got her lab results back and her iron saturation level was 4 and marked "Alert". Her serum level is low also, 17.
Madsmom2008--Low sat and low serum are indicative of iron deficiency. Has she had other labs, what were those results like? FLFLOWERGIRL:)
Thanks for responding so quickly and showing interest. I really need all the support I can get right now. Her UIBC was 392, Iron Serum 17, H&H 8.6/25.8 RDW 22.3. Report also reads " Anisocytosis present. Hypochromasia present."
