My paternal grandmother had phelbotomys but never really understood why, and was never geneticly tested. Through testing I was told I have iron deposits in my liver. I was going for weekly phelbotomy's for quite sometime.
I am very interested in anyway I can to help educate the public.,as well as the medial profession. Also I am looking at any support goups/information/conferences related to hemochromatosis. My mothers side of the family are Native American and from Oklahoma. Since bringing my ferrtin below 50- I have experienced less fatigue as well as less joint pain, My shortness of breath has also improved.
My liver enzymes were high for 6-7 years, but doctors said it was from having a fatty liver.
After having joint pain , primary ordered iron test and ferritin was around 900.
