Hubby has high iron…its affecting his liver enzymes, and possibly more. Finally dr ordering a hematologist to test further. He had lots of blood work done this past week, we wait on results. Hoping its hereditary, and will require large blood draws, and nothing more serious. I looked up diet with people that have this disorder and I understand they absorb abnormal amounts of iron from certain foods. Non heme, and heme foods…if anyone knows about this, please talk to me and share your insights.

Hi @dazlin, I would like to invite back @joejan to Connect and this discussion as they also posted about their husband being diagnosed with hemachromatosis.

@dazlin, what information has been shared with you from your provider in regards to this potential diagnosis?
