high ferritin level
hi, folks, I am a hep b carriers.  I cannot find hep b group here, so i come here to seek some help. I am 30 years old male, and was born with hep B. My liver function tests are always normal. HBV-DNA has been fluctuating around 500- 5000. fribroscan result was 5.2kpa. My doc says my condition is not serious, but i have a lot symptoms, such as fatigue, liver pain adn joint pain.
Recently I have my ferritin level tested, and the result was 355, a bit higher than the normal range(20-300). I am worrid if my virus cause the ferritin level to go up? is my symptoms caused by high ferritin? should i go for a de-iron treatment?  I read some articles, and they suggested high ferritin can cause liver cance in Hep B people.

thank you!
