Re: high serum iron low ferritin???
Pat--You are right about HH, I think that there are other comditions that can cause overload (that are not HH,) I'm not sure though. I don't understand how a simple multi vitamin (low dose iron) could give you such a very high saturation and serum iron. The heavy periods explain the low ferritin, almost without a doubt. Iron supplements can skew the blood test. Perhaps a simple repeat of the iron panel is in order. Keep us posted. FLFG
