Blood test results

    Hi all!

    I have read some opinions about how higher athletes’ iron or ferritin blood values should be but I have never seen anything about other blood values.

    Are there any normalized physiological values for endurance athletes, except the ones mentioned above?

    I had recently a blood test and I see that although my results are physiological they tend to lean towards bottom limits. I would love to know if I should focus on increasing some of them in order to prevent worse scenarios.

    Thank you in advance for help and recommendations!

    There are some things to consider for athletes, but overall blood values can be quite individual and depending on a lot of things. And most of them are not different from non-athletes.
    Also with ferritin it’s not the higher the better.

    I would recommend discussing your values with your physician, who knows you.

    If you have any specific questions I hope I/we can answer them.
