Frequently asked questions
You can’t find the name of the medical condition on the quote system?
Haemochromatosis is an easy condition to misspell by accident. As a general rule, if you are unable to locate it during the Medical section of your quote, try entering just the first few letters and clicking ‘search’.
You have already declared cardiomyopathy, but the questions for haemochromatosis are asking you about it again?

Holiday tips for travelling with Haemochromatosis
- By now you will most likely know to avoid foods that contain high levels of iron. But each country and culture might have foods that you’re unfamiliar with. If the menu or container does not state the foods iron levels, it is worth asking the chef or avoiding it altogether.
- Holidays are a time to relax, but keeping your alcohol limit low will help avoid haemochromatosis symptoms.
- Limit intake of vitamin C.
- Do increase intake of turmeric, calcium, magnesium.
- Don’t smoke (or at least try to cut back); tobacco contains high amounts of iron that is directly absorbed by inhalation.
