Care Plan


First steps to consider

  • If you have signs of hemochromatosis (iron overload) like joint pain, fatigue, skin bronzing (darker areas), see a healthcare provider to get a diagnosis and discuss a treatment plan.
  • Hemochromatosis can be treated with dietary changes, phlebotomy (therapeutic blood draws), and chelating agents (binders that help remove iron).
