I've been sleeping a lot lately because I'm almost constantly tired. I donate platelets every 2 weeks and they always tell me I have great iron levels. I went to my doctor and he decided to run a bunch of blood panels. He's out of town for a week so I was curious if anyone could give me some insight on the numbers that are out of "normal" range. I'm a 24 year old female.

Hgb A1c % 5.3 %
Red blood cells count 4.85 M/uL
Hgb 13.3 g/dL
Hematocrit 41.0 %
MCV 85 fL
RDW, RBC 14.1 %
Platelets count 309 K/uL
Iron 90 UG/dL
Transferrin % saturation 16 %

Now for the ones that were out of normal range:
Ferritin 11 ng/Ml
TIBC 562 UG/dL
Iron Binding Capacity, Unsaturated 472 UG/dL

My LDL cholesterol was at 140 and it says it should be under 130. I was surprised to see that since I'm pretty young for high cholesterol and not overweight or anything.

Any ideas? Thanks!
