A healthy result should fall into the range 38 - 169 µg/dL, 6.80 - 30.25 µmol/L, or 38.00 - 169.00 umol/L.

The human body requires iron to perform many vital physiological functions. Iron in the blood is mostly bound to the transportation protein transferrin. Most iron in the body is bound to red blood cells or stored in the spleen and cannot be directly tested. The body takes in iron from the food you eat so it is important to have good sources of iron in your diet. Only about 10% of the iron you consume is absorbed. The process of iron absorption is tightly regulated because your body does not have any biochemical ways of removing iron. Instead, iron is lost through processes such as bleeding, menstruation, and breast-feeding. Additionally, iron within the body is constantly being recycled and reused. 

Normal Ranges for Iron in ug/dL:

Children: 50 to 120

Newborns: 100 to 250

Iron for Females: 26 to 170

Iron for Males: 65 to 198
