I have a doctor's appointment in three weeks, however, I recently received my latest blood work and I'm not sure what it means, if anything.
 
Kidney function is at 41% -- that's usual for me.  For the first time, the doctor ordered a Transferrin Saturation (TSAT) test.  Reference range is 15-50 and it came back at 9.  Transferrin is normal at 244.  No Ferritin tests were ordered. Can someone help me understand this value.  Thank you.
