Hemochromatosis

Iron level

01/21/2009

Question:

my blood ferritin level is 27ng/ml,serrum ferritin is 850ng/ml and TS% is 25%.what range of hemochromatosis do i have?

Answer:

Unfortunately, you have given two different ferritin levels, and I have no way of interpreting this information. It would not, however, apply to what range of hemochromatosis you might have, in any event. To determine this, you would need to have genetic testing to find out if you have the gene. Along with accurate lab results, we might be able to comment on how much iron loading there is.
