I am a 76 year old male, who is 170 cm tall and weigh 68 kg. Presently I have anemia, and my hemoglobin is 9.6 g/dL. I also have high serum ferritin level of 1900 ng/mL. I have this problem for some time. Many years ago, I was diagnosed with thalassemia minor. I was feeling tired, and I had a headache in the right temple area more frequently for the past two years. At that time, I had high blood pressure of 160/80 mmHg and low testosterone of 4.6 ng/dL. My blood pressure was controlled by Losartan 50 mg and Hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg. I am also taking Viagra. A year back, I also had platelets clumping. My doctor is considering iron chelating tablets. Will chelating tablets lower hemoglobin? I used to take iron supplements, but due to iron overload, I stopped taking them. What can be done to increase hemoglobin and lower serum ferritin? I am attaching all my blood reports.
