Unsaturated Iron Binding Capacity (UIBC) Test In Pune

Unsaturated Iron Binding Capacity (UIBC) Test In Pune

Starts from 150*

Our body comprises multiple minerals. Typically, minerals, such as iron, calcium, zinc, phosphorus, sodium, and potassium are important parts of our daily diet. Iron is a vital mineral that helps maintain the steady flow of oxygen. You should imbibe iron from the food items you eat for various reasons. Another significant reason is to keep the hemoglobin count of blood normal. Hemoglobin is made of iron, and therefore, you must maintain a steady iron level in the blood. The deficiency and overload of iron lead to dire health consequences. To diagnose these, a UIBC test in Pune is generally recommended by doctors.

Unsaturated Iron Binding Capacity (UIBC) Test In Pune

Why Is UIBC Test Done?

There is a specific type of protein found in our blood serum, called transferrin. Transferrin is the conjugation of two different terms – ‘transfer’ and ‘ferrous’. The Latin for iron is ‘ferrous’ and thus, the protein that helps iron ‘transfer’ from one place to the other is known as transferrin. The UIBC test measures the transferrin levels of our body.

  • The iron-binding capacity of our body can be segregated into two parts – Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) and Unsaturated Iron Binding Capacity (UIBC).
  • Transferrin level in our blood increases when the iron storage in our body is low than the normal.
  • Similarly, when iron storage is high, the transferrin level drops drastically.

Both the circumstances lead to various health concerns. Classically, low iron storage or iron deficiency can lead to anemia and acute anemia, whereas a higher concentration of iron storage can lead to various inflammatory diseases.

The most common symptoms of iron-binding disorders include-

  • Chronic fatigue/tiredness
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Headaches
  • Pale skin

Likewise, iron overload has its own symptoms. They are-

  • Joint pain
  • Fatigue, weakness
  • Weight loss
  • Lack of energy
  • Abdominal pain
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Loss of hair
  • Heart problems

If you observe these symptoms frequently, consult a health practitioner immediately.


What Does UIBC Test Measure?

Iron storage capacity or iron-binding capacity varies from individual to individual.
Normal levels of UIBC in a healthy human body fluctuate between 111 mcg/dL and 343 mcg/dL.

  • The UIBC levels vary during pregnancy or if someone uses excessive oral contraceptives.
  • Imbalanced diet and malnutrition reduce the iron-binding capacity of our health with inflammatory diseases.
Risks/Side Effects Of UIBC Test

UIBC tests are completely risk-free. UIBC tests are performed to confirm various ailments caused by an iron-binding disorder (iron overload or iron deficiency) within a human body.

Interpreting UIBC Test Results

Interpreting UIBC Test Results

As we mentioned earlier, the UIBC may go up and down, but the levels should stay within the bracket of 111 mcg/dL to 343 mcg/dL.

Following is a table to decipher the deficiency and overload UIBC in our body.

Consequences of Low UIBC Consequences of High UIBC
  • Hemochromatosis
  • Certain types of anemia
  • Inflammation
  • Kidney diseases like nephrotic syndrome
  • Liver disease
  • Malnutrition
  • Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) is typically higher than normal when the body’s iron stores are low
  • A high TIBC usually points toward late pregnancy or iron deficiency anemia
  • Oral contraceptives may also cause UIBC to rise above normal levels

UIBC is a simple blood test that involves analyzing your blood serum to determine the UIBC levels. You should consult a doctor and perform the UIBC test if you see the anemic symptoms (stated earlier). Fortunately, this health concern has a medicinal solution. For high and low UIBC counts, doctors will prescribe you different medicines. But never forget that diet plays a crucial role in managing the iron storage levels of your body.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
