hI

cAN ANYONE MAKE ANYTHING OUR OF THESE BLOOD RESULTS


FERRITIN...........8NG/ML
HEMAGLOBIN 12 G/DL
TTG 6.4
IAG 4.4
CRP 0.73 MG/DL

ALL OTHER BLOOD RESULTS WERE WITHIN NORMAL RANGE

I HAVE HAD A COLONOSCOPY AND ALL WAS GOOD.

User avatar Most of these values are very minimally abnormal. Your hemoglobin and ferritin levels are slightly low, probably indicating that you are a little iron deficient. Taking a multivitamin with iron can help this.

The CRP is a measure of inflammation. Normal levels vary from lab to lab but most doctors consider levels <1 normal.

TTG stands for tissue transglutaminase and is a test that is used to help diagnose celiac disease. Again, normal levels vary based on the lab but this level does not generally indicate a significant presence of this antibody. If it is present it indicates an increased likelihood of celiac disease.

I am not familiar with the IAG test so I cannot comment about it.

Best wishes.
