High Iron Levels


downunder

Recommended Posts

I have just been diagnosed with very high iron, need to see a specialist soon. I have never heard of the condition, and have now read up on it a bit. I could have rheumatoid arthritis too. I hope that isn't the case.Anyone here got the same?

 

Depends on what was actually high on your blood tests. If it is ferritin it could just be a non specific inflammatory response (which if you actually have rheumatoid arthritis could be the cause) but haemochromatosis is one thing they'd want to rule out. I wouldn't worry too much, just wait till they go through a few more tests and can tell you what's actually going on.

Thanks. My main concern is getting it fixed as I am sure it's why I am tired a lot of the time.

OK so you are now officially Forum Doctor.

When you ejaculate it's full of iron, so w***ing is considered by many medical people to be a fast and efficient method of relieving high iron levels. Eight to twelve w***s a day every day for a fortnight and you'll feel right as rain!

So I need to cut back?

Wife was diagnsed with it (haemochromotosis)

 

It's more commonly found in men than pre-menopausal women as women have an in-built phlebotomy mechanism once a month that helps offset the worst of the symtoms. But it can cause all manner of issues if left untreated - and treatment is easy

 

At it's worst, she gave an armful of blood one a fortnight for a couple of months and got her ferritin levels regularised. Oddly enough, she also got pregnant at that time too.... She's been fine for years - every time she sees the doc she gets her bloods done and so far she's been fine.

Thanks for that, do you know what her levels were when diagnosed? I am not seeing anyone until the end of the month, until then I just carry on as usual.
