Hello, newbie on here so hope this is ok to ask. In January this year, I went to the doctor as was feeling generally tired and little motivation. I had been tracking my drinking in November and December and it was high, averaging 50 units per week. I stopped on the 3rd Jan and the doctor referred me for a LFT. The results came back as high ferritin (over 500 from memory). I have had 2-3 days since where I have had a drink, the most being bottle of wine in an evening, and I have eaten healthily. I was confident my result would have improved. I did the blood test in March, just over 2 months later and the result came back as no problems. I was elated and had a couple of drinks at Easter to celebrate. I went to the GP today for an unrelated matter and she said that my results had come back with the ferritin levels increased even more and I was given incorrect information on the phone. I am devastated. She has asked me to do another LFT and I am being referred for a scan on my liver. Can I ask if anyone has any experience of how the ferritin levels could have increased even though I had abstained from alcohol in the 2 months between tests, except for 2 days. I am a 42 yr old male, no other health issues, no other symptoms of liver disease. Many thanks.
