Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) test helps to check the iron binding capacity of a protein transferrin. It helps to diagnose excess or deficiency of iron in the blood. This test is recommended if a doctor suspects the symptoms of iron deficiency or excess such as fatigue, hair loss, paleness, delayed mental growth, irregular heart rhythm, weight loss and joints pain. Lack of iron in diet, pregnancy or excessive menstrual blood loss can lead to iron deficiency. Genetic disorders such as sickle cell anemia, hemolytic anemia, hemochromatosis and liver damage can cause iron toxicity .

 TIBC is often used to evaluate iron metabolism and determine the body's ability to transport and store iron.

Iron is an essential mineral required for various biological functions, including the production of red blood cells and oxygen transport. In the blood, most of the iron is bound to transferrin, a protein that transports iron throughout the body. TIBC measures the capacity of transferrin to bind iron.

When assessing iron status, TIBC is usually evaluated alongside other parameters, such as serum iron levels and ferritin levels. High TIBC levels may indicate iron deficiency anemia, as the body produces more transferrin in an attempt to increase iron availability. Low TIBC levels may suggest a high iron-binding capacity or excess iron storage in conditions like hemochromatosis.

Understanding TIBC results in conjunction with other iron-related markers helps healthcare professionals in diagnosing and managing various iron disorders, such as iron deficiency anemia, iron overload, or certain chronic diseases affecting iron metabolism. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider to interpret TIBC results and determine appropriate treatment options if necessary.
