Last week blood results were...
Ferritin 455 (range 22-322)
Iron 87 (range 49-181)
Iron Binding Capacity 286(range 250-450)
Iron Saturation 30 (%18-50)
Three weeks ago....
Iron, Serum was 258.
Glucose slightly high at 106 (range 65-100).
ALT (Liver Enzymes) was slightly high at 55, three weeks ago too.
Everything else normal. Never had high iron beform that I am aware of. Historically, over last 5 years, maybe 2-3 times liver enzymes slightly high. But later normal. RBC count high, but later normal. CPK sometimes high. I workout alot and the doctor has surmised that the rise in RBC, CPK, liver enzymes etc, is so slight and could be attributed to dehydration, muscle breakdown etc. Sometimes chlosterol high and 2 months or so ago it was but now normal due to diet and supplementation.
BTW going to test my transferrin saturation Monday.
I do have a hemangioma on my liver that I think is 1-2 cm and has not grown. Found in '05 and checked again in '06.
I do not drink much, take in lots of protein, workout alot, lately have been taking Omega-3s, Red Yeast Rice and no-flush Niacin (for high cholesterol etc.) Also in last 2 weeks Milk Thistle, Liver Care supplement, Stinging Nettle, Saw Palmeto, Flax seed.
My question, should I be alarmed? Can you have a high ferritin reading and it amount to nothing? What could cause a high reading?
