Question: How to fix high iron and calcium, low copper and magnesium, without blood donation?

Your only options for decreasing iron levels are to eat a low meat vegetarian diet high in vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. That's probably your best bet.

But the thing is, a very vegetable rich diet is gonna be pretty high in copper. And it's going to be high in iron too, but it's gonna be very poorly absorbable iron. And you know, especially if you eat a lot of whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes, you can get a lot of phytate. When doing that, you should probably supplement with zinc. You could consider supplementing with copper. The preferred copper for me would be liver or liver capsules, which I think provide copper way out sized to the iron that they provide. I think that's your best option when you don't have giving blood as an option to get rid of iron. If needed, you can do supplemental phytate, but I would use that as a last resort rather than a first one.
