Hereditary hemochromotosis

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

In Chesterfield, Dr. Teresa Stillion is treating hemochromotosis.

This causes the body to absorb too much iron from the food you eat. Excess iron is stored in your organs such as liver, heart and pancreas.

It is hereditary, but early detection is key.

Blood removal by phlebotomy at regular intervals can help reduce iron load.
