Hi, thanks for the response! Do you know what your iron/ferritin levels were/are if you dont mind me asking? My ferritin is close to 600 but my iron is normal at about 92. I'm going to have the saturation rate and iron binding capacity tested this week to see if my body naturally holds on to iron or if it's because of something else. I was thinking that i would need to start donating blood regardless of the reason. Did you notice any difference after you started on keeping your levels low/normal?
