I've had problems with too much iron. Does it effect the testicles and is the damage permanent? I am 29 with very low testosterone.

In brief: It can.

Yes, high iron levels can effect both pituitary and testicles.
Seek out phlebotomy treatments to reduce your iron levels.

In brief: Hemachrormatosis

Or iron overload is associated with multiple glandular deficiencies, including low testosterone, but i would be surprised if this is occurring at age 29.
