... Is it necessary to have the TIBC/UIBC tested along with transferrin? (4 replies)
... The confusing thing is this. My UIBC and TIBC are both low, yet I do not have high iron and certainly not high ferritin. ... (1 replies)
... TIBC without UIBC is ok. Just subtract your serum iron from TIBC, and you'll get your UIBC level. ... (4 replies)

... hat measures your iron stores. Your ferritin is in the normal range as is your actual iron test. The binding proteins that carry iron are measured by the tests UIBC and TIBC. ... (9 replies)
... Thomas75-- Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC)-Is Transferrin which is a protein that carries iron in the blood. (TIBC)- Is the serum iron + the unbound iron capacity of the serum. (UIBC)-Is the portion of transferrin that is not bound to iron. FLFLOWERGIRL:) (4 replies)
... ed I'd ask this here since you all know so much about iron. I was slightly anemic about 5 months ago. When my iron panel was run, everything was normal except my TIBC and UIBC were low. ... (4 replies)
... what is UIBC and TIBC in an iron profile (4 replies)
... my doc ordered both....but the lab did not know what UIBC was and said they couldn't find it in their computer. This is Quest Diagnostics! ... (4 replies)
... I don't know because in the face of IDA the UIBC and TIBC go very high. Did they diagnose you with IDA? ... (4 replies)

... Had blood test and iron blood serum was 26.7 all other results were normal. Such as ferratin,tibc,uibc,hemoglobin and hemocratit. Anyone else have this result? (0 replies)
... I would recommend hemoglobin (which you have), hematocrit, ferritin, iron serum, TIBC & UIBC. Mainly the first 4 though. The red blue counts are the ones you want to be looking at. I don't think you have taken enough iron to really cause any sort of issue. With your hemoglobin borderline low, I wouldn't even think it's a big deal. Ferritin is your iron stores which is one of...

... Also the symptoms you listed are some of the most common that come with anemia. Editing to add with iron def. anemia. Iron serum will be low. Ferritin will be low. TIBC & UIBC will be high. Saturation will be low. Also adding your hemoglobin and hemocrit are both on the edge of being below normal too. (3 replies)
... Hello everyone, Last week I did some bloodwork on my own and saw that I had a High MCV level. I did a search on the subject and read I might have Anemia do to Low B12. Yesterday I did some more blood work and It turns out my B12 is very high but I seem to have a problem with my Iron (Low TIBC/UIBC) levels. I've made an appt with my Doc for tomorrow, but now I'm wondering whats... (0 replies)
... Hi Sylk, It would help if you posted the reference ranges of your lab. My iron, TIBC/UIBC are measured in mcmol/L. At this point, I can only say your Ferritin levels is quite low. You need it to be at least 50, better 80 or higher. How fast you'll have it up there depends on some factors like your iron absorption rate, presence of other health conditions, like... (1 replies)
... Penny, Unless you know for certain your anemia is due to low iron levels, taking iron supplements can be harmful. It would be hard to say if that is the case without knowing your ferritin, TIBC, UIBC, and iron serum/sat levels were from a CBC. Normally, the body is good at regulating from iron poisoning, but in some people that mechanism is turned off and iron... (4 replies)
... I got tested for iron deficiency recently because I have been feeling fatigued. Everything (TIBC, UIBC, Serum) for iron was within the normal range except the saturation, which was low. (13%) I'm confused as to what this means. (0 replies)
... Hello, anemic friends! I'm new to the board and have been reading the posts like crazy trying to make sense of my recent discouraging blood test results. The results are similar to many others who've posted, but I wanted to run them by the forum in case something stood out. Any insights, advice or just plain encouragement would be very welcome. A little background. I'm a... (0 replies)
... Now that absorption is much better my iron is creeping up, UIBC and TIBC both going down. Ferritin was up 4 years ago, and has been creeping down. Perhaps lower Ferritin is associated with hashi as suggested. ... (21 replies)
... My hematologist (who I see yearly for follow-up on a rare cancer-like blood disorder) noticed that my platelets have been low for some time and checked my iron levels back in October. When he checked them the first time, my iron was 80, TIBC 630, UIBC 550, and SAT% 13 (he didn't check my ferratin), but my hemoglobin and hematocrit were normal. Three weeks later, my iron was...

... On May 31st, I had iron labs and CBC run. They showed iron deficiency and anemia. B12 and folate were also checked, and they were normal. Hemoglobin 9.9 (11.1 - 15.9) Hematocrit 32.0 (34.0 - 46.6) MCV 74 (79 - 97) MCH 22.9 (26.6 - 33.0) MCHC 30.9 (31.5 - 35.7) RDW 16.1 (12.3 - 15.4) All other CBC values were normal. Reticulocyte count was 0.6 (0.6 - 2.6). Here... (6 replies)
