    Transferrin is a glycoprotein formed in the liver. It transports circulating iron obtained from dietary intake and red blood cell breakdown. Transferrin carries 50% to 70% of the body's iron; normally it is approximately one-third saturated. Inadequate transferrin levels can lead to impaired...
