Iron worse to have high or low levels? Cirrhosis after cured with Harvoni.

Wondering because I know people who are restricted from Iron intake but not me.  I use a supplement and get infusions too.

I would ask your doctor everyone’s situation is different but personally I don’t think getting extra iron is a good idea for someone with cirrhosis

Always just trying to judge me cirrhosis which is significant.
I would ask your hepatologist
