Dietary Changes

Excerpted from The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (  Posted: 12/2009 )

Your doctor may suggest that you change your diet if you have hemochromatosis. You may be advised to:

  • Avoid taking iron, including iron pills, iron injections, or multivitamins that contain iron.
  • Limit your intake of vitamin C. Vitamin C helps your body absorb iron from food. Talk to your doctor about how much vitamin C is safe for you.
  • Avoid uncooked fish and shellfish. Some fish and shellfish contain bacteria that can cause infections in people who have chronic diseases, such as hemochromatosis.
  • Limit alcohol intake. Drinking alcohol increases the risk for liver disease and can make liver disease worse.
