    Low ferritin high iron saturation

    I've been on iron supplements (50mg a day) for quite a while because my ferritin was around 25. My latest blood test shows ferritin decreasing to 16 but my iron saturation increased from 27% to 56%. I'm very confused about this.
    I don't want to increase my iron saturation even more by continuing iron supplements but my ferritin levels should increase by quite a bit. Not sure what is going on.
    Can anybody advise?
