There are a few measurements of iron levels that a blood test measures. The test measures Serum Iron as well as Iron-binding capacity. The normal range for either of these measurements is depends on your gender and age.

According to WebMD, the normal range of serum iron for men is 70-175 micrograms per deciliter (mcg/dL). The normal range for women is 50-150 mcg/dL, and the normal range for children is 50-120 mcg/dL. For iron-binding capacity normal ranges are for men and women 250-450 mcg/dL (http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/iron-fe?page=2).

Where you fall within these ranges depends on which measurement you are asking about, and the units of measurement indicated in your record. See if your records indicate the type of measurement as well as the units of measurement. If you find this more detailed information feel free to respond here. If not, I'd recommend asking your doctor or other qualified medical professional to review and explain you iron test results further.
