High iron level
Hi, I am concerned about blood tests, but, I don`t have any symptoms. The results are: UBIC 96(ug/dl) Iron serum 233 (ug/dl) Iron raturation 62(ug/dl) Gamma glutamyltransferase 128 (g/dl)
Now, I am taking TEGRETOL. Is it cause my iron level high? Pleae advise me. Thanks a lot.
Taking Tegretol will not cause your iron levels to be high.
