Re: Low ferritin, high iron saturation
How did they diagnose the hemochromatosis - was it confirmed with a genetic test?
I have intermittent high transferrin saturation (as high as 73%, but more recently it was only 25%), and high free iron, but low ferritin (near the cut-off for "normal") - and on a low iron diet (mostly vegetarian) - hemochromatosis was suspected, so I was tested and was found to not have it. So far I've been told that as long as the ferritin isn't high, I need not worry about my odd iron levels - I'm not as convinced, as I don't think excess free iron is good. My father's sisters, and one of their daughters, has a thalassemia minor (there are several types, I forget which they have), but I don't seem to have that either.
Good luck with figuring things out.
