Question Iron Blood Test Results--Questions.

My iron labs came back as follows:

Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC): 244 (250-450) Low
UIBC : 193 (150-375)
Iron, Serum: 51 (35-155)

What is "Iron Binding Capacity" What causes it? My doc sends me the report with the number circled but no instruction on what kind of supplement I should take or how much.

Any advice?

PS my thyroid labs are still iffy--Optimal TSH, low T3, OK T4.
