It’s a genetic defect, not a character flaw.

Hey Dr. Specialist, don’t you dare call me fat, lazy and weak until you have completely reviewed my medical background. If I’m in your office for a problem with my bladder, treat THAT, and don’t tell me that I need a personal trainer twice a week and I should lose weight.

The fact that you even noticed hemochromatosis on my chart and the comments that you made, told me that you’ve never seen a patient who actually had it, and that the only thing you know about it is outdated information that you learned decades ago in med school. If you had, you would know that the primary complaint is weakness, then fatigue. It’s a GENETIC DEFECT not a character flaw.
