I have high triglycerides, normal cholesterol levels, but high iron levels in my blood. Any idea what this means? Thanks!
Not enough info: The high triglyceride can be dietary but liver disease and diabetes should be excluded. The high iron is only signficant if you have evidence of hemochromatosis which causes liver disease. You need a fasting serum transferrin saturation & fasting sugar, plasma ferritin and liver function tests. Elevated iron may simply be a sign of good health. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I always had low iron levels and normal blood pressure since yesterday my BP is 153/123 today 153/116 is there a reason for this sudden change?
I had a blood test a few months ago and blood cell count was normal but on the lower side so my dr gave me iron tablets and now my blood tests are excellent how do i maintain good iron levels?
Were you anemic?: Do you have heavy periods> Were you iron deficient? Some people require iron supplements but most get by with good sources of bioavailable iron, mostly meats, unless they have a cause for iron loss, i.e. gi bleed, woman with heavy menses, exfoliative dermatitis, etc. First confirm it is indeed iron deficiency, secondly treat appropriately. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
