Secretargirl007 profile image

I carry the sickle Cell trait. My TIBC is 331, iron 31. My Mom also Carrie’s sCT and is 72 and been told she can’t take iron and she’s 72. Her hematologist told her after certain age, if you have SCT you can’t t aske iron. He has her on folic acid and multivitamin. He’s left. turning 50 this month . Is it ok for me to take iron?

Thank you
