Will heal: Hemochromatosis is the easiest of all the deadly diseases to manage. That pituitary gland of yours should heal up nicely once your doctors get the iron out of you. And focus on how you feel, not the labs.

Yes. : Phlebotomy to reduce ferritin to less than 200. Hcg or Clomiphene in the meantime may help to increase testosterone.
