Since starting Tasigna 9 month ago I have had a steady slow rise in my ferritin level.

Has anyone experienced this?

I hardly eat red meat and consider myself a very healthy eater so I'm baffled.

My recent labs came back at 428. Range was 5 - 400 so it was just over the high normal.

Having high ferritin can apparently lead to several issues.

Thanks in Advance!
