Normal Iron Levels for Men?

Hey guys. I had blood work done last Tuesday to check my iron levels because I was tired and my hemoglobin was borderline low. I'm not seeing my doctor for a few weeks but I can access my results through his web site. Mine came out to be 60..Unfortunately it does not say what the range was on his site, so I don't know if this means iron deficiency or not. Some sites I have checked say it should be 75 or above and some say normal can be as low as 50..What is the normal range for iron on your guys lab results? Thanks

Re: Normal Iron Levels for Men?

One thing I'm learning really fast is different labs have very different numbers.

I am trying to figure out my lymphocyte count right now and one lab says 24-44 while another says 16-45.

On my papers from my lab the "normal" range for iron says 37-170 . On a site that I trust it says 50-150. See how different they are? I am reading for men it's 70-175. Hopefully a fella can chime in here and give you theirs!

I am thinking if the Dr. saw your labs and they were low enough to worry him that he would have gave you a call. What was your ferritin?

Hey, Heatherx5. He didn't check my ferritin. Only the iron, TIBC, Iron saturation, Vitamin B12, and folic acid. Everything was normal

Btw, I've gotten tons of CBCs and your lymphocyte count should generally be between 20-45. Usually the doc doesn't suspect anything is wrong unless it's as high as 50 or as low as 15
