BLOOD #2

HERE IS THE STATE OF PLAY SO FAR…

My ferretin level at state of play today is 798. The normal level is  between 10 – 300.

Ferretin is used by the blood to create new red blood cells, so what they do to take down your ferretin levels is take a 1/2 litre of blood from you, and then hopefully the excess will be used in the creation of new red blood cells. So, only monday I will be having my first blood extraction procedure, a venesection, and then have to have blood tests a week later. After that I will be having another venesection, followed by another set of bloods.

This will continue until I have a ferretin level below 100. It could be sometime.

SYMPTOMS OF EXCESS FERRETIN LEVELS ARE:

I don’t have all of these symptoms but I have enough to make normal life difficult.

further reports as and when I have them.
