Avoid Excess.: Eat a regular diet. You do not need to avoid foods with iron if you are being monitored reasonably. You do not need to eat any foods to try to reduce iron levels either. Do not eat vitamin c in excess and do not consume raw seafood.

Agree with Dr. F: Any easier way to reduce the iron load in the body is by having blood drained, i.e., therapeutic phlebotomy.
