Hey all,
This is my first post here and I'll get right to it. I discovered in late June that I had iron deficiency with these numbers:
IRON : 94 (40-190)
TIBC : 363 (250-400)
% Saturation : 26 (15-50)
Ferritin : 12

The Doc had me start taking iron supplements and I was tested again yesterday. Here are the results
IRON : 51 (40-190)
TIBC : 305 (250-400)
% Saturation : 17 (15-50)
Ferritin : 26

A bit more background, the blood tests were originally ran to find why I had been so fatigued (with other symptoms like brain fog). Turns out my testosterone was basically non-existent (initial total testosterone was only 85).

I was glad to see the ferritin increased since that was the only iron related number that was actually out of range, but I'm surprised that the iron and saturation levels dropped. Is this normal?
