Hi Keith

My blood test came back that I am heterozygous – I am a carrier only and do not suffer from the condition. Both my daughters are homozygous, but only the older one has elevated iron levels. My son is heterozygous as well. My iron levels were tested concurrently and they were normal. So hemachromatosis is not my problem (Unfortunately?). Nevertheless all my comments above still apply. People should be tested and respond accordingly if they do test positive.

Best,
Rod
