Approach to High Ferritin

Podcaster: Caitlyn Vlasschaert Medical Discipline/Topic: Hematology, Internal Medicine Intended Audience Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 Brief Synopsis/Key Takeaways: 1. Think of the 4 major AOLI causes (alcohol, overload, liver, inflammation), keeping in mind that several are likely contributing in one patient. 2. Transferrin saturation >45% is highly suggestive of iron overload as a contributing factor, including hemochromatosis, and would warrant referral to hematology. Other key tests to order include: CBC, ESR, CRP, Cr and lytes, LFTs and hepatitis serology (B and C), abdominal U/S, glucose, A1C, lipids, and HFE gene testing if you’re suspicious of hemochromatosis. 3. Good rule of thumb: High ferritin is anything >300, but for those in the 300-1000 range, lifestyle modification targeting the non-iron overload causes is appropriate, with hematology referral for ferritin above 1000 as this plus high transferrin saturation is specific for hemochromatosis and phlebotomy may be nece...

Approach to Low Ferritin and Iron Deficiency Anemia

Podcaster: Caitlyn Vlasschaert Medical Discipline/Topic: Hematology, Internal Medicine Intended Audience Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 Brief Synopsis/Key Takeaways: 1. Ferritin below 15 equals iron deficiency. In the setting of chronic inflammation, ferritin below 30 and transferrin saturation below 20% can be used as cutoffs. Iron deficiency can cause anemia and non-anemic fatigue. Treatment is appropriate in both cases. 2. Treat underlying causes when possible. Causes can be split into decreased iron intake and increased blood loss. Think about decreased iron intake with vegetarianism, autoimmune gastritis, H. pylori gastritis, celiac disease, gastric bypass, as well as blood loss – commonly GI (including malignancy) and heavy menstrual bleeding. 3. To replete iron deficiency, aim to restore 1-1.5 g of iron, whether that is more rapidly with iron infusions or over a few months with oral iron supplements. Pay attention to amount of elemental iron in what you’re prescribing. Oral...
