In brief: Get Treatment

Hemochromatosis occurs when too much iron builds up in the body.
Symptoms-abdominal pain, fatigue, generalized darkening of skin color (often referred to as bronzing), joint pain, lack of energy, loss of body hair, loss of sexual desire, weight loss, weakness. The goal of treatment is to remove excess iron from the body and treat any organ damage. Phlebotomy is the best method. Special diet help.
