Hi
Welcome to the forum!
Low RBC with high iron and iron saturation should be investigated for hemochromatosis, thalssemia, hemolytic anemia, and liver disease. It would be good to consult a hematologist.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
