Iron Blood Test and Normal Iron Levels Chart by Age

A quick summary of iron blood test: Serum iron blood test measures how much iron inside the body. Ferritin test measures how much iron is stored inside cells. TIBC test (total iron-binding capacity) measures all proteins needed to link iron including transferrin (means the total transferring available). UIBC test (unsaturated iron-binding capacity) measures how much iron for saturation of transferrin. Transferrin saturation is a calculated percentage to tell how much transferrin is full with iron. Morning iron is higher than the rest of the day’s iron levels by 30%. 67% of the body’s iron is inside hemoglobin in red blood cells, other...

Normal WBC Count (WBC Count Range Chart)

Normal CBC values with differential at birth

From the fact that Normal values for the complete blood count tests are age and sex dependent, as well as how high above sea level you live is another factor, I have decided to post all normal ranges of CBC by age and sex with differential count of white blood cells and platelets. Identifying specific limits for every age and sex remove the false interpretation of blood diseases. Below is a complete image of infant’s normal blood cells count according to universal standards.All figures are brought to tell the nurse and physician how many cells are in the blood stream...
