The Living Force
...My blood Ferritin came out high at 341 ug/L and she said that as such, the government will now pay for a full iron panel workup – so back to the hospital and more revolving doors back to the Lab to give more; which is helping me in small stages to get rid of blood at least. She said that if the results are such and such, the gov will then allow for gene tests. However, the good news is they will help me out with a routine of taking pints and monitoring my blood as applicable...
Also, remember that taking repeated blood draws to measure iron status can have a "normalizing" effect, so that "full iron panel" might not tell the full story.
That iron is really messing up with your metabolism. Yeah, decanting iron is a priority.
Yes, decanting is the priority. It will either happen at the local hospital or will drive the 300 km. to get it done.
Edit: Changed from carrier to source.
Also, what is it about the "metabolism" that i can feedback to the physician, in terms of language, to help to expedite quickly their referral process to decant blood based on the Ferritin 341 ug/L result?
