So I've been getting a ton of blood work done lately because it's so fun. I use privatemdlabs.com with the 15% off coupon because it's so cheap and I don't need a doctor's sign off. I got iron/ferritin/TIBC blood work done because I'm a carrier from the hemochromatosis gene. While it shows that I'm "within range," It seems that my Ferritin is rather high. I'm confused about these numbers. Some are borderline low and some are borderline high. Is my Ferritin high? TIBC: 258 REF: 250-450 ug/dL UIBC: 155 REF: 150-375 ug/dL Iron, Serum: 103 REF: 40-155 ug/dL Iron Saturation: 40 REF: 15-55% Ferritin, Serum: 314 REF: 30-400 ng/mL I've been reading that 300 ng is pretty high for Ferritin. Bonus: Progesterone: 0.7 REF: .2-1.4 Cholesterol Total: 149 REF: 100-199 (seems a bit low) My thoughts with these two labs were to see how much progesterone I had (.07), to see how much the adrenal glands were producing, and of course cholesterol is important as well, as it's converted to preg... so it seems that part is working ok.
