We also have a handout on Iron and WED/RLS.
What lab tests should your doctor request?
1) serum ferritin,
4) percent iron saturation
Note from Dr. Earley: For managing WED/RLS with iron we want to get the levels into the mid-upper normal range. At a minimum you want ferritin > 100, TIBC< 350, fasting serum iron > 70 and % iron saturation > 20%. If two or more of these values, do not meet these criteria then I treat with IV iron.

Just wanted to thank you so much for putting on the webinar. Really learned a lot and am excited about the opportunity to see if upping iron helps my RLS. Glad that I contributed to the organization if you are putting forth such great information as last night's webinar. ~ Susan
