Transferrin is a protein responsible for transporting iron through the bloodstream. Testing transferrin levels is crucial for assessing iron status in the body and can help diagnose various conditions. You can easily and accurately have this test done at IntroLab, in Belgrade.

What is transferrin?

Transferrin is a key protein in the bloodstream that transports iron. It plays a central role in moving iron from storage sites, such as the liver and spleen, to areas where it is needed for essential biological functions. Changes in transferrin levels can indicate alterations in iron metabolism, which may result from various health conditions, including iron deficiency anemia, iron overload, and certain chronic diseases. Therefore, measuring transferrin levels is an important step in identifying and treating these conditions.

Who needs to get tested?

A transferrin test is recommended for individuals who may have conditions related to iron metabolism disorders, including:

  • People with symptoms of anemia: Symptoms can include weakness, fatigue, pale skin, rapid heartbeat, and difficulty concentrating. Anemia due to iron deficiency can result in reduced transferrin levels.
  • People with symptoms of iron overload: This includes individuals with hereditary conditions like hemochromatosis, which causes excessive iron absorption.
  • People undergoing certain therapies: Patients receiving long-term blood transfusions may have elevated iron levels, leading to increased transferrin levels.
  • People with chronic diseases: Chronic conditions such as kidney or liver disease can affect transferrin levels.

Measuring transferrin levels helps doctors develop an appropriate treatment plan. The test involves a simple blood draw, and test results are available the same day at our laboratory!
