Transferrin is a protein that transports iron around the body. A transferrin saturation test measures the amount of iron bound to transferrin. This helps check for iron deficiency or iron overload.
What is transferrin saturation?
Transferring saturation isn’t an individual measurement – it’s simply a useful percentage arrived at by dividing your serum iron by your TIBC.
