Customer Question

Can obesity cause high iron levels in the liver
JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.
Customer: My lab work came back saying I had high levels of iron in my liver, I am not a drinker and I have put on about 40 pounds over the last 5 years
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No I am not having any issues so just would like to know if the weight could be the issue causing the iron in the liver
JA: OK. Got it. Last thing - JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $34) to post your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
