Effect of Chemo on Haemochromatosis

I am wondering if there are any others out there who have haemochromatosis and have experienced a reduction in ferratin levels since chemotherapy.

I am now 3 years out from treatment and have not required a venesection. My recent iron studies showed a ferratin level of 52.

I have asked my oncologist about this but he could offer no explanation nor provide any information of this occurring in others.

    Welcome to the community hub.

    I am unable to provide any insight in to your question but I am hoping it will resonate with others on here, who will get in touch with you soon. There are many others here, all very supportive and friendly too.

    I hope you are doing well post treatment and have managed ok throughout the lockdown and covid situation.

    Take care,
