Total iron binding capacity (TIBC) is a blood test that shows if there is too much or too little iron in the blood.
Iron is carried in the blood attached to the protein transferrin.
This test helps measure the ability of a protein called transferrin to carry iron in the blood.
DOCTOR, THIS INFO WAS ON MY CBC, YOU JUST ACKNOWEDGED IT.. MY QUESTION IS THEN, ARE YOU SAYING THE PROTEIN TRANSFERRIN IS THE FAULT? HOW DO I WORK TO CORRECT THAT...
AS I TOLD YOU I KNOW I HAVE IRON ANEMIA AND AM TAKING IRON WITH ONLY A MERE ONE POINT IMPROVEMENT IN TEN WEEKS..PLUS I AM UNDER DOCTOR'S CARE, BUT WHEN HE SENT THE READ OUT, NEVER BROUGHT UP THE HIGH BINGING..HAVE RESEARCHED IT, BUT IT NEVER IS COMPLETE IN ITS DESCRIPTION. SO I AM STILL THE SAME PLACE I WAS YESTERDAY WHEN I WROTE YOU. SO NO THIS WAS NOT HELPFUL. KJ DEWERT
