Haemochromatosis
Treatment

Understanding Haemochromatosis

Haemochromatosis is a genetic disorder that causes your body to absorb too much iron from the food you eat. This excess iron is stored in various organs, particularly the liver, heart, and pancreas, which can lead to serious health issues such as liver disease, heart problems, and diabetes.

Symptoms of Haemochromatosis

  • Fatigue

  • Joint pain

  • Abdominal pain

  • Liver dysfunction

  • Skin discolouration

  • Diabetes

  • Heart problems

Our Blood Removal Service

We offer a specialised blood removal service, also known as blood letting, to help manage haemochromatosis.

This treatment involves removing blood regularly to reduce the iron levels in your body.
 

Initial Treatment: In order to use this service, we need a treatment plan from your GP or specialist, to understand how often to remove blood and how much.

 

Depending on your iron levels, we may see you weekly or bi-weekly for blood letting sessions until your iron levels are brought down to a safe range, then we will see you less frequently.
