High Iron Level
I am 29/f. 5'2" 113lbs. I had gastric bypass surgery 12/14/2009. At my routine 18 month post op visit I was notified that my iron levels are too high. I am wondering what may cause this sudden rise in iron. I have an appt with my PCP in two weeks. Would you suggest any questions to ask or information to provide? I thank you for your time and assistance.
