It seems unusual for a male to have low iron so I'm worried. My son's bloodwork came back today, and doctor wants him to take a prescription iron supplement for 3 months. If that doesn't bring the iron up, he wants him to have GI checked for possible bleeding. Can anyone interpret his bloodwork for me please?

Iron - 46
% saturated - 12
TIBC - 398
B12 - 405
Ferritin - 43.2
MCH - 29.2
MCV - 87.8
Hemoglobin - 13.6
RBC - 4.73

He has hypothyroidism and his TSH 3rd Gen is 4.13.

He is 23, 5'10" 200 pounds and just started working out pretty heavily at the gym about 3 months ago. Full time job, college student, and terrible sleep and eating schedule.

Thanks for your help!
