Vitamin C increases iron absorption. Higher iron levels are problematic for those prone to high HGB and HCT levels.
Im prone to high H/H but I also have issue with low iron.
The phlebotomies fixes the H/H but drops my iron.
I had 3 iron infusions last year. It really sucked when my iron levels got down to 19.
Its been a roller coaster.
Lowering H/H, drops iron.
Fixing iron, increases H/H.
