Hemochromatosis

Iron levels in children

01/13/2009

Question:

my son is 8 years old and just had blood tests and I was told his iron level was 11.4 is this high or low?

Answer:

Thank you for your question. Because iron levels would not be expressed the way you state, I suggest that you talk with your son's doctor to determine what the actual test was.
