hcv with high iron and ferritin levels
Feb 14, 2010
My iron and ferritin levels are high and my doctor tells me that my hcv can cause this. However, I have a family history of iron overloads without hcv. Is it possible I have hemachromatosis (could be misspelled) in addition to hcv and even if I do not, should the iron levels be lowered by blood letting?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Yes, that is possible and can be tested for by your doctor.
