I just got back from seeing a hematologist. I discussed with him raising my ferritin (which I can't seem to get very high - 19) when my iron levels and transferrin saturat are high. He said that my iron and transferrin would be high if I was taking the pills when I got my blood drawn. He said that whenever I get ready to have bloodwork, that I should be off of the iron pills for a week because my blood would be saturated with iron if I'm taking the supplements. If my iron and transferrin are not higher than the range, then I am safe from iron overload and could continue to try and raise my ferritin.
