I do understand what you are saying about hemo- , my half sister died of liver disease, but they never once checked her for hemochrm. She had cirrosois of the liver. Later I read about hemochrom, and the wheels started turning, of course its too late for her ,but I made sure all of her children were aware and my brother was also, They told him that he didnt have it but his iron count was too high so he has to go periodically and have blood drawn, at his expsense. It seems to me that it could be used in sick , recovering people as well as other blood , more to an advantage for them but what do I know. Good Luck answer me at my private e mail if you wish, I cant get on to the links to read the answers. Good Luck Keep on making them check your count.
