Low transferrin saturation (TSAT), calculated by serum iron divided by total iron-binding capacity (TIBC), indicates iron deficiency. Because malnutrition and inflammation are associated with low TIBC in chronic kidney disease (CKD), TSAT might not reflect iron status or risk for anemia. We examined whether low serum iron was a risk factor for anemia in CKD patients with normal TSAT. Read More
