Family letter – what they need to know about haemochromatosis

Since haemochromatosis is an inherited disorder, family members of someone diagnosed with haemochromatosis are at increased risk of also having the condition. It is important to alert these  family members and tell them what they need to do about it.

Explaining haemochromatosis to others might seem a difficult task, especially if you have just been diagnosed yourself and are just learning what you need to know to manage the condition.

Haemochromatosis Australia with the assistance of our GP Liaison Officer Dr Katie Goot MBBS FACRRM has developed a one page letter suitable to email or post to relatives. It explains what they need to know in simple terms and is suitable for them to take to their own GP to discuss testing.
