I am 79 years old and have a iron blood level at 11. Am told the norm is 400. Im trying to understand. This being investigated.

Your iron level in blood is what carries the oxygen to your brain, if the blood level is low 10 is low you may have lack of energy and feel tired.
it depends what your normal level has been all along, everyone has a different level that's how they get the averages. If yours is dropped radically then that's why they're doing the investigation.
You can add iron to your diet by eating leafy green vegetables as well as possibly trying a multivitamin that has an iron component to it or there are iron tablets that you can take over the counter but you have to be very careful because they cause severe constipation. And usually with the constipation the cure is worse than the disease.
When you don't understand what the doctor tells you it's important for you to tell him that so that he can put it in language that you do understand.
Good luck stay well

My iron level is 1000 after taking prescribed supplements for a year. Is this dangerous?

That is way too high according to health experts. 450 is the high end, high iron levels in blood can cause heart attack risk to increase. The easiest way to lower it is to donate blood at a blood bank.

Is barley green grass good for lowering iron

No. It contains iron. If your physician has tested your blood and discovered that your serum iron (ferritin or transferritin) level is too high, your best advice is to follow your physician's instructions about how to lower it. If you don't agree with those instructions, please visit with another physician after forwarding them a copy of your blood test - you may choose to hand-carry that blood test, of course.

Elevated ferritin and/or transferritin can be a sign of a very serious illness, one that can take your life if you screw around with it.

What are the side affects

Many supplements contain active ingredients that can have strong effects in the body. Always be alert to the possibility of unexpected side effects, especially when taking a new product.
Supplements are most likely to cause side effects or harm when people take them instead of prescribed medicines or when people take many supplements in combination. Some supplements can increase the risk of bleeding or, if a person takes them before or after surgery, they can affect the person's response to anesthesia. Dietary supplements can also interact with certain prescription drugs in ways that might cause problems. Here are just a few examples:
  • Vitamin K can reduce the ability of the blood thinner Coumadin to prevent blood from clotting.
  • St. John's wort can speed the breakdown of many drugs (including antidepressants and birth control pills) and thereby reduce these drugs' effectiveness.
  • Antioxidant supplements, like vitamins C and E, might reduce the effectiveness of some types of cancer chemotherapy.
Keep in mind that some ingredients found in dietary supplements are added to a growing number of foods, including breakfast cereals and beverages. As a result, you may be getting more of these ingredients than you think, and more might not be better. Taking more than you need is always more expensive and can also raise your risk of experiencing side effects. For example, getting too much vitamin A can cause headaches and liver damage, reduce bone strength, and cause birth defects. Excess iron causes nausea and vomiting and may damage the liver and other organs.
Be cautious about taking dietary supplements if you are pregnant or nursing. Also, be careful about giving them (beyond a basic multivitamin/mineral product) to a child. Most dietary supplements have not been well tested for safety in pregnant women, nursing mothers, or children.

Rest leg syndrome treatment

There is a lot of argument about this. Sometimes it has no specific cause, but can be due to vitamin or iron deficiency, or something more serious like diabetes, so see a doctor for a blood test to rule these out.

Does high blood pressures med.cause you to have memory problems? And is there a way to get back off high blood pressure meds.?

As you know from watching television, all medications have many potential side effects. However, having said that, as a working RN for 25 years, I have never heard of blood pressure meds causing memory problems. If anything, it is the other way around: high blood pressure may cause decreased circulation to the brain and therefore possibly cause some memory loss. The thing about blood pressure meds is this: they are very very important! If you allow high blood pressure to go untreated, you can damage your eyes and your kidneys, both which have tons of small blood vessels. You can also wind up having a stroke. Generally, it is unsafe to get off blood pressure medications on your own.

A nurse said my iron was low he said it was a 43 how low is that

Depends on the type of test he is using and if you are a male or female. Normal serum iron values are 75- 175 micrograms/dL for a male and 65-165 micrograms/dL for an adult female.
Did the doctor prescribe treatment? Low iron is an indicator of iron deficiency anemia. PLEASE ask your doctor for his recommendation.
As a side note, I have a real problem with a nurse disclosing test results to any patient. They are NOT the doctor.... All test results should be discussed between the patient and the doctor. HIPAA rules may have been violated here (Your patient rights)..
