Re: Iron
Oct 19, 2009
High ferritin is also a sign of chronic inflammation. I asked my doctor recently why my ferritin level doubled from 20 to 40 in just one month when normally it takes quite a bit longer to get the level up and my level has always been too low. She said we will test again in a month as it is sometimes a sign of inflammation and as I have arthritis in almost every joint this may be how it is showing up. I have normal iron levels, hematocrit, hemoglobin and WBC, but low RBC so we are trying to figure that out. Second reason may be lab error. If the number doesn't look right, it is always best to redo the test.
