Non existent liver iron but blood iron level is normal
Patient : Hello! about 9 months ago i had a blood test done and it showed very low iron levels. I had the gastroscopy done (I'm on aspirin since I had a stent put in) but it showed no bleeding ulcers or anything like it. Since then I habe been eating liver and red meat regularly and had my blood test done recently. My iron was normal but my liver iron stores are non existent. My doctor doesn't know why. What could be causing it?
