82 Possible Causes for Transferrin Decreased - Iron Increased

  • Iron Deficiency

    Although the transferrin level is increased, the serum iron level decreases; transferrin saturation decreases.[merckmanuals.com] Thus, TIBC increases when serum iron concentration (and stored iron) is low and decreases when serum iron concentration (and stored iron) is high.[cdc.gov] When occurring together, the effect of infection, inflammation, and malignancy on increasing serum ferritin often predominates over the decrease with lack of iron, concealing[cancertherapyadvisor.com]

  • Anemia

    Anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores, low serum iron concentration, low transferrin saturation, and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit value.[icd9data.com] Iron-deficiency anemia was characterized by decreased levels of iron and ferritin and increased levels of transferrin, whereas anemia of chronic disease was characterized[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The erythrocytes are hypochromic and microcytic and the iron binding capacity is increased. 280 Iron deficiency anemias 280.0 Iron deficiency anemia secondary to blood loss[icd9data.com]

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    Note: Laboratory values are decreased Hgb, Hct, RBC count; decreased MCV, MCHC; increased RDW; decreased ferritin, serum iron, and transferrin saturation; increased TIBC![lecturio.com] Normal range 20% to 50% Iron deficiency anemia Serum Iron Low TIBC Increased Saturation of Transferrin Reduced often Chronic disease Serum Iron normal TIBC Decreased or normal[meddean.luc.edu] Anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores, low serum iron concentration, low transferrin saturation, and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit value.[icd9data.com]

  • Gastritis

    The laboratory tests at the moment of admission pointed out anemia, increased level of serum iron, increased liver transaminases, a decreased level of ferritin, but with normal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] levels of both total iron-binding capacity and transferrin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemochromatosis

    In both control and iron-depleted patients, a positive correlation was found between the decrease of antibacterial effect and the increase of both serum iron and transferrin[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For most HC forms (types 1, 2, 3 and 4B HC) iron overload is related to cellular hepcidin deprivation which causes an increase of plasma iron concentration and the appearance[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Transferrin saturation may remain increased when body iron stores and SF values are subnormal; phlebotomy that reduces transferrin saturation to low normal values may result[bloodjournal.org]

  • Normocytic Normochromic Anemia

    : investigations Iron studies - Ferritin increase - Transferrin decrease - Iron decrease - TIBC normal or increase MCV no change or low Inappropriately low EPO due to decreased[quizlet.com] Iron utilization is impaired, with decreased serum iron and transferrin concentrations. and an increased synthesis of ferritin.[arthritis.co.za] […] or absent iron stores; decreased serum ferritin; low serum iron; low transferrin saturation; increased iron-binding capacity hypochromic, microcytic, erythrocytes a decreased[innvista.com]

  • Microcytic Anemia

    Further evaluations indicate severe hypochromic microcytic anemia with decreased serum levels of iron, TIBC, and increased serum level of ferritin in this patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Decreased Normal to increased Normal to decreased Normal to increased Total iron-binding capacity Increased Normal Slightly decreased Normal Transferrin saturation Decreased[aafp.org] The serum level of transferrin was decreased. The diagnosis of atransferrinemia was confirmed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anemia of Infection

    Serum iron and percentage saturation of transferrin decreased, whereas serum ferritin increased significantly.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Serum iron and transferrin are typically decreased, while ferritin is normal to increased. Treat the underlying disorder and consider recombinant EPO.[merckmanuals.com] TIBC tends to be increased when iron stores are diminished and decreased when they are elevated.[irondisorders.org]

  • Pathological Fracture

    Also, the serum iron will be decreased, while the serum iron binding capacity is somewhat increased, so that the percent transferrin saturation is much lower than normal--[webpath.med.utah.edu] The result is a normochromic, normocytic anemia in which total serum iron is decreased, but iron binding capacity is reduced as well, resulting in a somewhat decreased saturation[webpath.med.utah.edu] , but increased ferritin.[webpath.med.utah.edu]

  • Constitutional Anemia due to Iron Metabolism Disorder

    It reflects compensatory increase in expression of transferrin receptors on the cell membranes of erythroid cells and decreasing intracellular iron.[mine-med.ru] […] serum iron and ferritin (a measure of total body iron stores) Increased total iron binding capacity— transferrin is less saturated with iron and increased capacity for transporting[brainscape.com] Related ICD 10 COde ICD 10 Code D59 ---------------------- Iron deficiency Anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores, low serum iron concentration, low transferrin[medicbind.com]
