Transferrin Saturation (TSAT) is a blood test that measures the percentage of transferrin, a protein that transports iron in the blood, bound to iron. It is a useful indicator of iron availability and metabolism in the body.

Elevated TSAT can indicate iron overload, which may be due to conditions like hemochromatosis, excessive iron intake, or certain types of anemia where iron is poorly utilized.

Low levels suggest iron deficiency, commonly seen in iron deficiency anaemia. It can occur due to inadequate dietary intake, increased iron requirements, or chronic blood loss.
