puffiness in hands and feet due to high iron?

Hi there,

I'm new to this forum and am wondering if anyone could explain some of the symptoms I have? Slight puffiness in hands and feet along with shortness of breath during physical labour. I recently found out my iron levels are genetically high around 400 (mg/L? I think) and am currently in the process of unloading this through phlebotomy. I'm also experiencing a dark urine, (tea coloured). I have been feeling better after giving blood but am worried has the iron has already damaged some of my major organs and such. I'm a 30 yr old male.

Has your Dr ran any test on you like some CBC to make sure that none of your levels are high you should express your concerns with him or her

Also Astaxanthin and Curcumin are good supplements to help reduce or maintain your new levels but ultimately giving blood is the best way and it helps people
But as long as your liver and other reading are within the good range you are good
