Hoping someone can shed some light on my blood results for iron. I have been suffering for 2 years now with tiredness, hair loss at the front, no sex drive, sleep problems, depression with no answers!! I have researched online and apparently my ferritin and hemaglobin levels could be causing my hair loss but my iron is high? How is this possible?!
Haemaglobin concentration 134 g/l (115.0-165.0)
Serum iron 28 umol/l 9.0-27.0) above reference limit
Serum ferritin 29 ug/l (15.0-150.0)
I was also checked for celiac disease anti tissue transglutaminase and it was 0.3 it says 0.4 upwards is considered borderline positive so surely I'm close? Maybe I wasn't eating enough gluten?!
The doctors are doing nothing more for me and life is miserable right now.
