Answer

Continuous observation of patients with hereditary hemochromatosis regarding the potential complications of the disease is recommended. Regular follow-up visits should be scheduled with the gastroenterologist. Others, such as a cardiologist, an endocrinologist, or a hematologist, may be needed for serial diagnostic and therapeutic intervention. Quarterly visits with healthcare providers may be necessary depending on the severity of the symptoms or complications.
