Hi, I would like to know something. I am suffering from hepatitis caused by C virus. I suppose I got it during one blood transfusion after a car accident. During recent testing doctors have noticed that my iron in blood is increased. Could you tell me is there any correlation between those two conditions?

Many scientists have debates over this thing. Some of them think that hepatic content iron is not related with liver damage. On the other hand some of them have different opinion and think that the abnormal iron values are a result of necroinflammatory changes induced by chronic hepatitis with hepatocytolysis and release of cellular iron or ferritin in circulation.
