Should I Be Screened?
The decision to have
hereditary hemochromatosis carrier screening is a personal one.
This testing is used to find out if a
person has an increased chance for having hemochromatosis. It may be
recommended for people who have a close family member-parent, brother, sister,
or child-with this disease.
testing is expensive. If you are paying for the test, you will want to consider whether the cost of the testing is worth the results.
