Taking iron: Multi vits with iron are the most common culprit. If that's the case stop them and retest in a month or two. Some family's have a disorder called hemochromatosis which makes your body hang on to the iron. This can be dangerous as iron is toxic to liver, joints, etc. Have it checked out.
