Your physician needs to address this with you. ...Read more

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 more

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

Had baby 17 days ago. Had curettage due to bleeding. No blood transfusion. Breastfeeding now. What should the normal iron level be?
