Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the reports attached here (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • High TIBC (total iron binding capacity) indicates low iron in the body. Low transferrin saturation again indicates low iron and so does the low mean corpuscle volume.
  • I suggest you tablet Zinfe-XT (combination of zinc, folic acid and vitamins) once daily. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
  • You are having high cholesterol, so start control your cholesterol level by diet modification as well as physical activity. If it is not getting controlled by this, then you may require oral hypolipidemic medications.
  • You are having high TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), which indicates hypothyroidism. But, it is needed to be confirmed by repeat testing before starting any medications. Diet and exercise do play an important role in maintaining thyroid function.
