My serum iron was elevated at 241, however my ferritin, TIBC, and transferrin count were in the normal reference ranges. Is this hemochromatosis?

In brief: Donate blood

What you described is not necessarily hemochromatosis.
There is a genetic for it that you may wish to get in consultation with your doctor. If you are otherwise healthy consider donating blood, it will reduce your iron and you will do a good deed. See this site for more info. https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003488.htm
