Hemochromatosis: The most important thing to know is that all of your first degree relatives need to be examined and have lab tests and genetic testing for hemochromatosis. In some cases imaging may need to be performed. See this link for more info:http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hemochromatosis/diagnosis-treatment/diagnosis/dxc-20167322
