I am 25 years old. Ten years ago, i found that my ferritin is high, around 500-600. For 8 years it was on this levels. I didn't searched for the reason until last May when i found that the ferritin level went up to 1500!!! I saw a pathologist and we started making some tests to found out if there is any damage done on the organs. We didn't found anything. So then I took a gene mutation test for hemochromatosis. I waited for the results for one and a half month. Today they informed me that there isn't any mutation at HFE, TFR2, FPN and HJV gene. Tomorrow i will found out the results for mutation on the HAMP gene (Hemochromatosis type 2b). Last week ferritin level was 1000. If this test is negative and I don't have hemochromatosis, what's next ? I am very confused...The doctor says that if it isn't hemochromatosis we must concentrate on liver and find out what causes so high ferritin levels...Inhipe for the best...I am very anxious and all this waiting is killing me...
