I can't figure this out I got a blood test done and my iron levels and blood cell count came out normal but my transferrin levels are pretty high. Can anyone guess what this means?

My hematocrit, serum iron, TBIC, RBC count, and ferritin was normal. My transferritin was 430. I am a male and do not take hormones which can alter transferritin. I eat alot of meat though. Could this effect my results since there may be hormones in meat?
