Not necessarily too much blood, but too much iron and red blood cells it that is what ou mean - this is called hemochromatosis.

how do you find out if this is the problem
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 6 years ago.
You will need to have a blood test called a CBC - complete blood count - and it this abnormal then you might need further testing such as a bone marrow biopsy or a liver biopsy. Usually a hematologist takes care of these problems.
