I'm trying to figure out what exactly causes Ferritin levels and what it means. The only one I had done was recently and it was 634. I'm a Stage 3 grade 4 from 2 1/2 years ago.
Response from Dr. McGovern
High ferritin levels have a variety of causes. In the setting of liver disease though, youi should ask your physician if you have had evaluation for the presence of hemochromatosis, a form of liver disease.
Can I clear Hepc without affecting HIV counts?
Chronic HBV or What..?
