I would go and donate some blood, usually this helps to bring the levels back to normal. Has your doctor said anything about this?

Actually I just went to the doctor yesterday and he said that with my level, the blood banks would love me.  He said it would help them and me.  I was so relieved that he wasn't concerned about the level.  Thank you so much for responding.  I feel much better knowing that you are suggesting the same thing.
