Brief Answer:
further tests required

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
his is definitely high hgb but still not critical. However further tests are required to rule out possible causes of increased hgb and feritin. This can be hematologic disease such as polycitemia, hemocromatosis. Other causes may include liver and kidneys disorders so you need to do liver an kidney ultrasound and more detailed blood tests. Wish you good health. Regards

I am a 51 year old woman who has been test for menopause and found not yet in that state. I have frequent, heavy period and spotting to the tune of bleeding up to 14- 20 days a month. I am currently taking iron as prescribed because my hemoglobin was so low. My Obgyn has prescribed Lo Loestrin FE to help regulate my period but I have never been on the pill in my life. I ve already lost my right tube and had my left one tied. My pap was normal. I ve never had children. I am very sensitive to hormones and STILL have a very high libo. The side effects seem just as bad as my condition with breakthrough bleeding. At my age will this RX help me?
