Susanna0174--Welcome to the boards! :wave:

Yes, you are iron deficiency without anemia at this point in time. The way that doctor's DX this is when one or more of the the three; Hgb, Hct & RBC's are below range and you can see that this is not your case from your CBC results.

You should investigate a cause for your deficiency or it will keep happening. Ask your doc about this. Most commonly it is due to having heavy periods.

A 5 % Sat and 20 Serum iron is low. You will also need to have your Ferritin tested which your doc should have no problem with due to your iron Stats. The Ferritin is a more telling measure of how much iron is stored in the bone marrow and organs. It tells how much you have used up and how much you have left. Anemia is the end stage of the iron stores. It goes through many stages as it is lowered. Along with ferritin testing you want to have your B-12 and folate checked it is typical when a patient is anemic, although you are not anemic yet you would be eventually, and it needs to be checked too.

Your WBC count is up slightly, have you been ill recently perhaps your fighting off infection? Take care. FLFG ;)
