High level of iron in blood
a recent blood test provided by a health fair revealed 302 level of iron in my blood test is this dangerously high ? and what are steps i can take to lower i.e. diet thank you
For any abnormal initial test result, we would suggest rescreening with a ferritin and iron in a serum TIBC and discussing those results with your physician.
