Re: Iron Saturation?
According to your labwork, it definitely looks like iron deficiency.
The actual "iron" level in your lab result is a 1. This number is hardly ever used anymore as it can change minute-to-minute during the day.
If your transferrin is high, like yours is, it is because your body is trying to produce lots of transferring to move the iron into the red blood cells.
Your saturation and ferritin are very low too.
Yes, too much iron can be bad for many organs. This is a condition called hemachromatosis. You don't need to worry about that. Too little iron isn't good either (but probably not as damaging as too much). The goal is to just get into the normal ranges.
