Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I have hereditary hemochromatosis and require a blood draw of 500ml bi-monthly to reduce my ferritin level. After starting the above medications, I have been having trouble with a low blood flow.
From this study (1 month ago):
I presented with Retinal Vein Occlusion for no apparent reason. I am 62, healthy, just had a checkup of body and eyes with no problems. Got off of HCTZ as a precaution. The vein opened back up after the occlusion, which the doctor said was a miracle. I'm in agreement with the "miracle" from God. I had this happen around the first of June, and no other problems with my eyes since. I have Salzman's Disease on my eyes. Have had for 3 years or so. No correlation to this occurance. Please let me know if you see anything that could have caused this. Thanks
