Maybe because you have some odd numbers in there. Your TIBC and UIBC are on the high side and your iron saturation is low which indicates your body isn't using it as efficiently as it should for some reason. Not sure if you stopped supplementing before your test, but usually you should for at least 3-5 days, because supplements can screw up the test numbers, making them appear higher than they actually are.

You aren't in danger of hemochromatosis at all, so I would continue taking it until doc says stop. He might just want to make sure you have a nice buffer, so your numbers don't plummet. Important if you have heavy periods or have gi issues.

Are you symptomatic? If so, have your symptoms subsided?
