OBJECTIVE:Unsaturated iron binding capacity (UIBC) has been proposed as an inexpensive alternative to transferrin saturation for detection of hereditary hemochromatosis. The aim of this study was to compare, in a hospital referral clinic, the reliability of transferrin saturation and UIBC for detection of subjects who have inherited HFE (HLA-asociated iron… CONTINUE READING
