Signs Or Symptoms Hematomacrosis
Varies: Many times, it is only presented with high iron saturation and or iron storage without having any symptoms. However, the clinical manifestations of iron accumulation can include liver disease, elevation of liver enzymes, skin pigmentation, diabetes mellitus, arthropathy, impotence in males, and cardiac enlargement with or without heart failure or conduction defects etc.See 2 more doctor answers
A few: Lack of energy, abdominal pain, memory fog, loss of sex drive, heart flutters, irregular heart beat. When symptoms are associated with hemochromatosis, these usually begin in men in their late 20’s to early 30’s. In women, symptoms usually start about 10-15 years after they stop having a period due to menopause, birth control pills or hysterectomy.
No one in my family has ever been diagnosed with hemochromatosis or had any of the symptoms; how could I possibly have this disease?
Recessive genetics: Hereditary hemochromatosis is a recessive genetic disease - you have to inherit two mutations, one in each of your two hfe genes, to develop this condition. Your parents would be carriers but completely unaffected. What's more, only 10-15% of folks with two mutations ever get sick. The american hemochromatosis society (http://www. Americanhs. Org/) has more information.See 2 more doctor answers

Are there support groups for polycythemia/ hemochromatosis in dallas tx area? What is a list of symptoms for these disorders? Thank u.
Search Internet: I found many online support groups for polycythemia by searching for "polycythemia search group" (http://goo. Gl/u06c9s). I'd suggest asking those members for assistance in your area. Same goes for hemochromatosis support groups (http://goo. Gl/8yvkzb). As for symptoms, check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/polycythemia-vera/ds00919 & http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/hemochromatosis/ds00455.
What is hemochromatosis & what is the symptom's and treatment - we understand it is heredity, however no one in family effected no more to give
Deadly to miss: Hemochromatosis is a genetic tendency to absorb iron overly well through the gut. This has its plusses but in the long run, in the absence of bleeding or iron loss from periods / pregnancies, too much iron accumulates. The liver failure, diabetes, joint pain at thumb base, dark skin are familiar; it's the easiest really bad disease to treat (drain blood) & folks feel much better.
Hemochromatosis: is it possible to be in 30's & post hysterectomy (have left ovary) to have symptoms develop over a 2 yr period? Testing? How is dx?
Hemochromatosis: It is hereditary disease and has nothing to do with your operation and age. It starts in child hood and diagnosed in 50's&60'. The tests are hemoglobin, hematocrit, serum iron, tibc, %saturation, ferritin. Gold standard for diagnosis is liver biopsy with dried tissue iron & deposit in tissue. Mri is also used. Later family screen and counseling done. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Can a person with skin bronzing symptom have hemochromatosis if his liver function tests are normal?
Yes: Patients with hemachromatosis do not always have elevated liver enzymes. It is possible to have bronzing of the skin without elevated liver enzymes. All of these manifestations would be uncommon at 19 years old as end organ damage generally takes decades.
My serum cortisol 8am test is normal but I show symptoms like skin bronzing & others. Can I have hemochromatosis? I'm 19 yrs and female. Need help : (
Please see doctor: You really need to see your doctor to determine what is causing the bronzing you've described. I previously mentioned hemochromatosis because those who have it may appear bronzed. However, it is not a common disorder. You merit a comprehensive evaluation by a physician who will take a thorough history and perform a physical exam to determine if you need any testing. Best wishes!
Informd highly unlike hemochromatosis but have gene for lessor known cause. W/o full blood work up how can dr be sure I don't have? Do have symptoms.
See below: If you have the less common gene, then you need blood work see an hematologist who knows more about this disease.See 1 more doctor answer
is hemochromatosis reversible through phlebotomy or must a patient undergo phlebotomy on a regular basis for the rest of his life? Does phlebotomy eventually ease the symptom so that this treatment may stop?
Can a 19 year old female show signs of hemochromatosis such as skin bronzing? Skin bronzing disappears during the menstrual cycle and returns back. Help
No.: The amount of blood lost in a normal period cannot by any means reoved the hemosiderin deposits in your skin. You are also too young for this to be a factor, in that you are female. Look elswhere for the answer!See 1 more doctor answer
Hemochromatosis - do I have to be a gene carrier to have symptoms? My gastro is just ck for gene not actual blood levels. Seems he may be skip a step?
Gene's not the key: If you're shown to be iron-overloaded, the key is "get the iron out of you." it's fun and good to go looking for the gene, and it'll be helpful for when other family members need to be worked up, but it's not going to make or break the diagnosis. There are a couple of common alleles at the main locus, some uncommon alleles and some other loci -- all part of a thorough workup.
