Hi there about one moth ago I had a one time bout of ischemic colitis. My day was great 2 power walks out and about went to dinner no symptoms at all . Then just bam came on me . My lab results said my ferritn levels were high at 172. could this be from the inflammation in the colon? and is that a high number to worry about? Thank you. Oh I am a 58 yr old female. thanks Debra
