Understanding Total Iron Binding Capacity in Jodhpur


What is Total Iron Binding Capacity in Jodhpur?

A Total Iron Binding Capacity test helps to assess the ability of blood to attach to iron and transport it to various parts of the body. It shows the total binding capacity of transferrin, the protein in the blood that is essential to bind iron and facilitate its movement in the body. Doctors use this test to help determine iron deficiency or iron overload.

What does Total Iron Binding Capacity measure?

A Total Iron Binding Capacity test measures the ability of your blood to bind and transport iron, and therefore reflects your body's iron stores. TIBC correlates with the amount of transferrin, a protein, in your blood, that helps bind iron and facilitates its transportation in the blood. Usually, about one-third of the transferrin measured is being used to transport iron, and this is called transferrin saturation.
