When you say Iron levels do you mean Ferritin? The reason I ask is my last Ferritin (Iron stores) was 176 and from what I understand that is normal/good.
Sorry to here your son is flaring again. What meds is he on? Probably time to try another maintainence med if the one he is on is not working or maybe he hasn't been on the one he is taking long enough? Some meds can take 4-6 months to reach full efficacy. Hope things quiet down for him soon.
