I am so frustrated, have been dealing with diagnosed hhemochromatosis for two years. I had the genetic test, I have it and have had to do phlebotomies to get rid of the excess iron. I am just so so tired all the time! Thyroid issues run in my family so I think I am also dealing with those! My internist seems perplexed, he does not seem to be able to help me! Any suggestions?View Thread
have been on 75mcg og levothyroxine, it just got reduced to 25 mcg. I am thinking I need an enderconoligist (I know I mispelled that). I have been fighting this battle for several years. My having hemochromatosis does not help at all!!!!!View Thread
I forgot to say my other symptoms are low body temp, dry skin flaking away, general hair loss, cracking heels, constipation, no energy at all!!! PLEASEEEE help me, this has been going on for several years!View Thread
