Signs & Symptoms

Chronic Iron Overload (IO)

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOU HAVE CHRONIC IO?

  • Signs are hard to see
  • Tracking serum ferritin levels monthly will help determine if you have chronic iron overload (IO)
    • Ferritin is a protein in your cells that stores iron
    • Consistently high serum ferritin levels may indicate that there is too much iron in your body
  • Your doctor may prescribe iron chelation therapy such as JADENU® Sprinkle (deferasirox) granules, or JADENU® (deferasirox) tablets
  • Before starting treatment with JADENU, your doctor may order tests to check liver and kidney function, as well as eyesight and hearing

It is important to know and keep track of blood transfusion levels, and to talk to your doctor about the signs of chronic IO.
