Topic: High iron level ?
Member # 35979
Did some searching but haven't came up with a ton. Not taking any supplements etc which could cause high iron . No history of abnormally high iron in the past few years.
Did have red meat 2x , and had quite a few alcoholic drinks about 2days prior this bloodwork.
Not taking any drugs for lyme/co's treatment at this time . I'm at 32 yr old male.
Have some generic symptoms that could come along with high iron , but chicken or the egg story . As to what's lyme, or my high anxiety level etc. ton of overlap it seems. any insight is appreciated.
High levels were
Iron level was - 200
Saturation % 70
Others in the panel showed normal
Ferritin - 149
Iron binding capacity - 294
Hemoglobin - 15

EEK! Look up hemochromatosis. Stop taking any supplemental iron. if you doctor isn't alarmed or trying to fix this find another doctor. Hemotologist or I hear Gi doctors might do it.
Treatment is simple. Phlebotomies. Although in the beginning it is rough because you have to do it so often (every week or every 2 weeks).
Dont ignore this. Too much iron is evil.
