My recent blood test on 8th Feb came back with the following:
CRP H 7.30 <5.0 mg/L
Ferritin H 564.5 20 - 150 ug/L
I was recovering from a cold when I did the blood test. SeasideSusie kindly interpreted the remaining results as far as B12, Vit D and Folate were concerned and they're in the mid range, so I am supplementing now accordingly.
But this high ferritin and crp is freaking me out a bit. I can't see my GP for a follow up till I get back to Oz in mid March. I read that ferritin levels can be reduced by donating blood, but that's not possible for me as I have Sjogren's Syndrome. I'm concerned that this high ferritin will cause irreparable damage
Is there a way of reducing ferritin? I'm fatigued and sooooo weary too. Any advice appreciated.
