I was wondering if anyone knows anything about hemachromotosis? I finally saw a liver specialist in the states. She said I may or may not have fibrosis based on my ultrasound but she suspects I do not. I think she based that opinion on all my other variables, FBS, BMI, age, weight, liver enzymes etc.
She ordered a fibroscan which I have yet to schedule. There is only one machine anywhere near me and I am in the process of moving my elderly mother and daughter into new homes...a little overwhelmed. She also ordered some more extensive bloodwork than I've had in the past. My serum ferrit results were high and I keep reading about hemachromotosis, or iron overload. The other iron tests were ok, although on the high end of normal. Two summers ago one of the more routine ones was high, I was test because I was bleeding from fibroids and I thought it odd that it would be elevated when I bleed for so long, I would have I'd be anemic.
So if anyone can shed any light on iron overload and or hemochromatosis and how it affects the liver, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
