Hemochromatosis is a disease in which too much iron builds up in the body. The body needs iron but too much of it is toxic. There are two types of hemochromatosis. Primary hemochromatosis is an inherited disease. Secondary hemochromatosis is usually the result of something else, such as anaemia, thalassemia, liver disease or blood transfusions. The genes that cause hemochromatosis are inherited, but only a minority of people who have the genes ever develop serious problems. Signs and symptoms of hereditary hemochromatosis usually appear in midlife.
HOW IS HEMOCHROMATOSIS DIAGNOSED?
Hemochromatosis gene (HFE) testing is a blood test used to check for hereditary hemochromatosis, an inherited disorder that causes the body to absorb too much iron.
HOW IS HEMOCHROMATOSIS TREATED?
Treatments include having blood taken out of the body on a regular schedule and taking medicines called chelating agents.
DID YOU KNOW?
In some cases, patients may suffer from anaemia too, which makes treatment more complicated.
