Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I have gone through the attached reports. The levels are not too alarming.
Too low transferin means over load of iron to the body. Body is absorbing more iron than needed.
Usually the acute inflammation is the cause such as any unknown recent infection or injury.
Do repeat it after 3 months
Any issues do follow up
Regards.
