Hello and welcome to HCM,
Hemachromatosis has to be managed by blood transfusion
and chelation therapy
for iron overload.
However, the vital organs are at a risk of iron deposition and permanent damage.
The most adverse effects of iron deposition are on heart.
The chronic deposition of iron can lead to cardiac failure.
Proper management can slow down the process of iron deposition and hence slow down the damage.
However, job profile like defense forces require optimal fitness and, thus hemachromatosis is a risk factor when crucial jobs are considered.
Stay in touch with your hematologist
for proper management and try to stay at a place wherein these facilities are easily available.
Thanks and take care
