Liver Disease and iron deficiency
I'm a 35 year old female that has been experiencing pain, low grade fever, and nausea for over a year now. I have had monthly liver enzyme tests and my enzymes are staying in the 400 range. The normal range at the lab is 40. An ultrasound has shown that my liver is enlarged. My doctor has diagnosed me with liver failulre and I'm having a liver biopsy tomorrow morning and I'm extremely nervous and anxious about the procedures and the.

During this whole process, I was also diagnosed with anemia. My body is depleting my iron storage so my iron volume is low. Is this a normal thing with liver disease? Generally, does liver problems affect your iron?

Also...if you have had a needle biopsy any information on what that was like for you would be great.

Thank you for taking the time to read and have a great day!
