Fatigue and Iron
« on: May 23, 2015, 04:46:17 am »
When some of us investigate the cause of fatigue, it might be good to know that fatigue can be caused by both low and high iron. For males, though, excess iron is much more frequent, especially among those who don't donate blood.

More info here from the Iron Disorders Institute: Link

They also list hypogonadism as a symptom of excess iron.

Just curious. I had a standard iron panel done, which came out good. However, at one point, I also had high ferritin levels (which is related).

So when people discuss iron related issues, which of these (or both) are the proper gauges? What does it mean one one is out of range but not the other?
