Susan and Cheryl, Thank you so much for the reply. Susan I will email you and Cheryl, I don't know your email, but as to your question I am 47 and my sister told me about hemochromatosis. She has almost the same problems I have so we discuss alot. I have not been tested for hemochromatosis that I know of. I go to a VA hospital, because my husband is 100% disabled with ankylosing spondilitis and it takes forever to see anyone. Go figure, us both having problems.
