Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
You should confirm the diagnosis of hemochromatosis. If you have not gone through liver biopsy then go for it. No need to do phlebotomy with anemia. consult your doctor and take treatment of anemia.

Hope I have answered your question, if you have any doubts then contact me at bit.ly/Drsanghvihardik, I will be happy to answer you.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
