When to go for this test?
If it is suspected that your body has too much or too little iron then the medical experts may suggest you to go for this test. A total iron binding capacity test price is very reasonable these days.
A certain amount of blood sample is required, on which the total iron binding capacity test will be performed.
At least 12 hours of fasting is needed before appearing for the test.
High TIBC usually indicates the presence of iron deficiency. However, a low TIBC may take place in case someone is suffering from malnutrition, any liver disease or nephrotic syndrome.
