I am a woman of 29 years.
Yesterday I picked up the results of a blood test.
my ferritin levels are above the reference range for women. 298 ng / mL. I get iron 12.20 umol / L. In february, ferritin was normal, 61ng/mL. Why? Its dangerous?
Not to worry: In some labs that would be a normal range. Low ferritin means you're low on iron. Since you been getting iron treatment your new ferritin level probably indicates it's time to back off or slow down.hi ferritin can be from inflammation or too much iron or if it's chronic hemachromatosis. Which since you've had low iron wouldn't be the case. Good health ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 more

Iron deficiency: Iron levels are raised by eating foods rich in iron - red meat & dark green, leafy vegetables. We absorb iron better from meat sources than vegetable ones. Iron can also be increased by taking supplements. The most important issue is to determine why the iron is low to begin with - is it just inadequate consumption or is iron being lost by bleeding of some sort? Please see your md to sort this out. ...Read more
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.. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
