Hi!
Normally in iron deficiency, TIBC, UIBC and transferrin are high while iron, ferritin and % transferring saturation is low. However, only TIBC, UIBC and transferrin may be high in initial stages or iron deficiency, or in women who use oral contraceptives or are pregnant. Please also discuss with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
