Hemochromatosis (Iron Overload) (cont.)
Patients with hemochromatosis need routine follow-up with their treating physicians. Blood draws to monitor iron, ferritin, and transferrin saturation are typically done every few months in those undergoing phlebotomy. Hemochromatosis-related diseases require regular follow-up depending on their severity, as recommended by the treating doctor.
