Default Has anyone got high ferritin?

Hi
I was diagnosed with ALS 4 years ago. About 2 months ago I was feeling way more tired than usual and saw my local doctor who ordered a blood test. Surprisingly this showed very high serum ferritin levels around 1200mg/L. I then did the genetic screen for haemochromotosis which was negative. My doctor is not sure what to do next and my neurologist is out of the country. Can anyone share any insights ? Thanks

Are you taking riluzole? It can affect liver function

No I'm not on Riluzole; tried it a couple of years ago and it had too many side effects for me
