My son's labwork is "conflicting" according to his pediatrician. He's been on iron supplements for 3 months for low hemoglobin at his 9 month old blood draw and just had his blood redrawn at 14 months old. His Hemoglobin is still slightly low (11.0), but his total iron is high (203) ad his iron binding capacity is also high (532).

His pediatrician told me to keep doing the supplements, but why would we supplement if his total iron is high? And does anyone know what these results could possibly mean? Thanks.
