Recently had a blood test done and my iron saturation showed 57 (range 15-55% and iron serum is 212 (range 40-155). What does it mean?
It could mean a number of things.
Serum iron and a iron saturation test (along with other tests) can be used to determine how much iron is being carried in the blood.
Your iron serum is high and iron saturation mildly high.
High levels of serum iron can occur as the result of multiple blood transfusions, iron injections into muscle, lead poisoning, liver disease, or kidney disease. It can also be due to the genetic disease, hemochromatosis.
You are best to talk with your doctor for more information.
