Hello and welcome to HCM,
is a hereditary (autosomal recessive) condition caused by mutation
of gene HFE. The most common mutation is that of HFE gene.
The mutation that you have mentioned is not the common one.
However, the serum iron
profile suggests an iron overload charateritic of hemochromatosis.
Since, the mutation is not a characteristic of the disease, a repeat iron profile is mandatory.
Besides hemochromatosis is also caused by a number of secondary causes called secondary hemochromatosis e.g. excessive iron intake, hemolysis
, multiple blood transfusions, excessive dietary iron, etc.
These causes have to be ruled out.
If the iron profile still remains the samebafter a couple of months and all other causes are not present, , management for primary hemochromatosis is needed.
It involves phlebotomy
Chelation is removal of iron from the body.
