TSH was within normal range (0.5-5.0mIU/L). Her CMP revealed normal kidney/liver function without sign of electrolyte imbalance. Her urine was clear from infection.

Her abnormal labs:

RBC 2.98. (4.2-5.4)

Review of labs

The serum iron test measures the amount of iron in the blood, while the total iron binding capacity (TIBC) measures the availability of protein to be bound to iron. So, patients with iron deficiency anemia (IDA) will often have a serum iron that is decreased and a total iron-binding capacity that is increased.  Jane’s levels were normal, so diagnosis was not leaning toward IDA……..Kindly click the purchase icon above to purchase the full solution at $10
