The liver produces protein transferrin, which binds iron molecules and carries them through the bloodstream to the bone marrow. Transferrin saturations of more than 50% suggest iron overload.

High iron levels can mean that the patient may have a condition known as hemochromatosis. Accumulation of iron in tissues and organs can be very damaging.
