Do I look anemic?
Jul 30, 2012
Here are my test results below:

B12 397 (243-894)
Ferritin 86 (13-150)
% Sat 26 (15-50)
TIBC 278 (277-439)
Iron 73 (49-151)
B12 397 (243-894)
RBC 4.48 (4.20-5.40)
HGB 13.5 (12.0-16.0)
Potassium 3.6 (3.5-5.1)
Calcium 8.9 (8.8-10.2)
Sodium 136 (136-145)

The Iron level isn't too low, but the "Total Iron Binding Capacity" is low and so is the "% Saturation" of the iron, which worries me. I included the electrolytes because I think I may have an absorption issue (such as Celiacs although my antibody blood test just ruled this out) because I feel as if I am getting enough of these via food and drink.

I should add that I'm taking a liquid B complex vitamin with 1200 mg B12 4xdaily, a liquid vitamin D3 5000IU 3xdaily [my Vit D level is 5 (30-100)], Iron 25 mg 1xdaily, and Vitamin C 1000 mg.
