Be sure you get the ferritin test and the transferrin saturation test. If either is elevated get treatment immediately. If your doctor is ignorant of hemochromatosis get a new doctor. Much suffering could be avoided with these simple and inexpensive tests which are not part of the standard blood tests your doctor orders at an annual check-up but they should be.
The treatment is simple and free. Donate blood (to get your stored iron down) That's it. (big pharma doesn't want you to know this) All men should get these tests routinely and all women after menopause.
