High Ferritin level, alcohol addiction. How can I get normal levels?

Hi I was told by my nurse that my Ferritin level is 292, however, I had no call from my doctor I asked her what to do, she could not give me a streight answer. So I searched the Internet and found out that I should not have any alcoholic beverages. I do like my dark german beer which I have at times - also a gin and tonic once in awhile what can I do to remove the high Ferritin and get it to a normal level Sincerely Gisela

Hi..zand.., quit having alcohol and repeat the serum ferritin level test after 4 to 6 weeks again..
the level of the ferritin will be reduced and HB will be normal..
eat much of green leafy vegetables.., dates, guava, these will increase hb in the body..

Take care..
