Hemochromatosis and Autoimmune Conditions

I was reading a paper which says it can indicate a functional iron overload, instead of a genetically predisposed iron overload. As per my memory, I am heterzygous for HFE, meaning that I carry a risk but that the risk is relatively minor.

Anyone got any ideas?

Or maybe stuff that you have done to improve your health results in mixed results. The saturation looks pretty high though. You could donate blood a couple of times and then see if there are any changes.

I know,

Whats even stranger is that the saturation has increased a lot since adding back in vegetables and some carbs.

Here are my results from July, when I had been pretty hardcore carnivore for around a year, including organ meats:

The only thing which was out was the TIBC. So since then things have definitely gotten worse - so I am guessing I am not "hemochromatotic", but it is a functional thing.


The waiting list for donating blood is like three months here, so I am thinking of just blood letting myself to hopefully bring it down.


One thing I did read was that GGT is a relatively marker for glutathione depletion and oxidative stress in the liver as a consequence of iron storage overload. My GGT was excellent, but my cells don't seem to want any more iron... that seems for sure :huh:

Hi,
I would like to share result of using IP6 (Inositol Hexaphosphate) for 2 weeks.
My last blood check done 03.03.2021 showed 48% saturation of blood transferrin.
Check done yesterday 01.04.2021 showed 33% saturation of blood transferrin.

Two things I was doing during this time were:
1. using IP6 500mg total 20 capsules during last month
2. autohemotherapy - 7 shots 11ml - some blood was escaping also

What comes to my mind as possible additional influence on result of staturation of blood transferin is that Iron as well could have been "used" by foreign organisms like:
- bacteria (I was sick for one week shortly after first blood test in the beginning of March) and spiting some greenish stuff from my nostrils and sinuses
- parasites (about that I do not know if I have) or
- tumor (about that I do not know if I have).
- or that iron was packed to some tissues

And just to add that I do not have hemochromatosis (checked by genetic test).

It's good to know, specially for those who can't do bloodletting!
