Iron Question
Mar 4, 2012
My TIBC is above 400, and my Ferritin is 10. All other iron tests are normal though.

Do my results mean that I am anaemic? I see my doctor in a week or so, but I'd like to know sooner than that what the results mean. I've looked on line, but it seems that iron is usually low too when the TIBC is low. I'm confused.

I've been taking a Ferritin supplement for the past few months, but my stomach does not tolerate it well.

This TIBC result is new, so I'm wondering if I need to do more to get my iron up.

I'm vegetarian, so it's hard to do! Any thoughts. Thanks.
