Yes, but...: It depends on why you are having too much iron...You should find out the underlying disease...If it is very mild, may not need to do anything. Stop all supplements if u r taking. Donate blood regularly will lower your iron level, if you need so--in such disease as hemochromatosis etc.. Young and healthy male may have higher iron than average, females have a bit less due to monthly loss..
