    conjunction with an increased ferritin level and is generally
    confirmed with a liver or bone marrow biopsy." (page 7 [pg445])

    I was diagnosed as a carrier of Hemochromatosis (only elevated ferritin and the DNA for a carrier) and yet there was no indication of concern for the correlation between that and my hypogonadism. I had a pituitary MRI with normal results and my LH was slightly elevated so I was diagnosed primary and treated with TRT. I, myself, up until now had no idea that it was related. Those doctors....

    Good information!
