Hereditary Hemochromatosis

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi ~ Haven't been on site for quite awhile now but back and searching for answers!  

I am almost 8 years celiac, totally gluten free, paleo diet for past 4 years,  and yippee, now I find that I have  Hereditary Hemochromatosis with genes provided by both parents. (thanks mom & dad!).  My ferritin levels are at 1200, should be 50, and am currently doing the weekly blood letting.  Sigh.  Just feel like I am getting weaker and weaker.  Muscle and joint pains, my vanity is shot as hair and eye lashes are falling out.  Feeling quite like an ugly sloth.  How was that for a Pity Party??! 

Basically just looking for anyone else out there going through this and any words of advice.  Help????

    Upfront for full disclosure, I am involved with GliadinX so my comments have to be seen in that light. I am financially benefiting from it (but not really because at this time it is not very profitable and I am fortunate that I do not depend...
    Been on PPI for two weeks..they help a little. Been on gluten-free (not 100 percent) for about 1 month. Hoping IF he can't find anything, he is smart enough to send me to a internalist, but who knows what he will do. I feel like he really ...
