I am a 50 year old women who experiences very heavy periods each month. Doc did an iron test and this is the results.

Iron, total 251 normal is 40-160mcg
TIBC 379 normal is 250-450mcg
Transferrin saturation 66 normal is 15-50%
Ferritin 14 normal is 10-232ng

Why is my ferritin so low and my saturation so high. She told me to stop taking my womens one a day vitamins because that could cause the high saturation. But my gynocologist told me to take it because it has some iron in it so I don't get anemic from all the heavy monthly periods. I know that hemacromatosis is high saturation but ALSO high ferritin which I don't have. What does all this mean please.
