Genetic Haemochromatosis is a disorder causing the body to absorb an excessive amount of iron from the diet. The iron is then deposited in various organs; the liver, pancreas, heart, and endocrine glands, and also the joints, causing many potentially very serious or even fatal symptoms and illnesses. Early diagnosis of the condition means that treatment is usually straightforward. Early diagnosis saves lives.
