I’ve just recently been diagnosed with  hemochromatosis, I’ve got to have a liver scan to check for damage (fingers crossed I’m ok) & await the blood letting.
The doctor told me to avoid cereals with added iron, that’s nearly all of them! 
Also read I need to avoid oysters & clams - not a problem & extra vitamin c with meals as it aids iron absorption.  So no orange juice with breakfast.
I’m not asking for medical advice, I just wondered if anyone has any tips for living with as it’s a life long condition.
