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.
