Magnetic response of a degenerate Fermi gas

I know that in a Fermi gas, the two common responses to a lo field are Pauli par. and Landau dia. and the last becomes the H-VA effect

My question is, it is the same treatment in degenerated Fermi Gas?

One speaks of a “degenerate” Fermi gas in case its temperature T is much lower than its Fermi temperature TF: T << TF = εF/kB where kB is the Boltzmann constant and εF the Fermi energy at T = 0. What is termed “Pauli paramagnetism” for the behavior of conduction electrons in metals when subjected to a magnetic field is derived on base of the assumption that there is a degenerate Fermi gas.

And what happens with landau diamagnetism? Because it comes by the movement of delocalized electrons

Charged particles couple to a magnetic field via their charge, leading to a diamagnetic contribution to the magnetic susceptibility. At low temperatures (degenerate case), this effect in a free electron gas is known as Landau diamagnetism.
