High iron results with blood testing



Recent bloodwork is showing the following results:

Iron, total: 244 Iron Binding Capacity: 291 % Saturation: 84 Ferritin: 52

39 year old female complaining of fatigue, dizzy spells for over a month, lower leg cramping. Do any of the symptoms coincide with high iron count? Does taking the herbal supplement St. John`s Wort have anything to do with the high iron count levels? Thanks very much!
