A 30-year-old female asked:
Could mild iron anemia and mildly low hemoglobin levels be causing my high (600mg/l) fibrin levels? thank you?

Iron deficiency is not associated with high fibrinogen levels. It can cause elevated platelet counts. It would be prudent to see the doctor who ordered the test to assess if you have inflammation.
Wish you good health!
