    Red face Hemoglobin

    Thank you in advance for the message board as it has been very informative about many medical issues.

    I'm 80 years old and had my first extensive blood work up. I've been told I have anemia due to iron deficiency which contributes to anemia. MY Hemoglobin os 10.8, below the required range of 11.1-15.9g/dl. I will be taking Feosol for this probelm to build up my Iron deficiency.

    My question is this, my iron count of 36 is within the required range of 35-155 ug/dl. What I don't understand is if my Iron count is normal why would I have a low Hemoglobin count of 10.8 below the range of 11.1?

    Thanking anyone who may have had same problem and found a resolution.

    Re: Hemoglobin

    Do you have your iron saturation or TIBC (total iron binding capacity) numbers as well? This will help me to explain the situation with the iron count that is in the normal range.
