No , it's ok ....ideal level for Men: 13.8 to 17.2 gm/dl ......a slight increase will be perfect...take bit more foods those are enriched with iron like beans, lentils, soybeans, black beans, white beans .......if you are nonveg seafood, poultry, eggs are good......Avoid consuming dairy products with iron-rich foods because the calcium in them reduces the absorption of iron.
