can u give us the normal ranges? your TIBC--total iron binding capacity is typically high when one has anemia. was your iron considered borderline? your saturation is low which is also indicative of anemia. talk to your dr about it. it is very borderline from what i can tell, but depending on what the official normal ranges for the specific test were. since yours is slightly low it will most likely normalize after you have been on the gluten-free diet for a while. as long as you are 100% gluten-free...but you can also try and eat iron rich foods. do you have any other symptoms, like cold, fatigue, paleness, ice-chewing?

well my iron was in range according to the test, cause they ranged normal to be 35-150..yes, more on the lower side though. And the TIBC is well within range cause the normal range states 250-450. THis test was also done well before I went gluten-free. Besides my semi-fatigue, i really didnt have other symptoms. Whats ice-chewing?? :huh:

Hey, your TIBC, Iron, and CBC were all normal, which means no anemia. Yay! Your Ttg is still high which is to be expected since it's only been a month. I don't know what UIBC is, but it looks like another Iron test, meaning you might have been low but are on the way up (I am totally guessing here.) I don't know what the CLO test is. Your TSH and B12 were normal too, meaning no pernicious anemia or thyroid troubles. You could still be low on other vitamins and minerals (my main ones were magnesium and iron), but these results look pretty good (other than the CLO thing which I am clueless on.)

ice-chewing=Pica.... it is a common symptom of those with anemia. i hate it severely, as did a friend of mine. Whenever I am anemia, I have a crazy desire to chew ice…like as in my ice maker couldn’t keep up with me. My friend would make her dh go out and buy her bags of ice from a grocery store! True story. Once I had the iron infusion, no more desire to chew ice. I haven’t chewed any since. My teeth are happy!

Glad the tests were in normal ranges...then nothing to worry about. Good to be educated on anemia etc. though.
