In brief: Phlebotomy
For hemochromatosis (an inherited iron overload condition), treatment includes phlebotomy (removing blood in the same way as donating blood).
This, of course, must be done under medical supervision. An option for those with iron overload due to multiple blood transfusions is the medication deferasirox, a chelating agent.
