Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) Test


The Total Iron Binding Capacity Test or TIBC test measures levels of iron in the blood and provides physicians more metrics and a better insight than a simple iron test. A substance called “transferrin” is responsible for moving iron throughout the body and this test breaks down how much iron is needed to saturate transferrin. Low iron levels can be indicative of an iron deficiency and/or anemia whereas high levels can lead to liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, or hyperthyroidism. Our Total Iron Binding Capacity Test will provide the necessary information to give a complete picture of your iron levels.

Testing Method: Blood draw
Test Preparation: Fasting is required (i.e. no eating or drinking anything besides water for 8 hours prior to testing)
