DEAR ANNIE: I am a female nurse, 46, married with two small boys, ages 7 and 8. Ten years ago, my brother was diagnosed with hemochromatosis. I had a physical recently and told the doctcor to check for this. My serum iron came back slightly high, and I have now had the lab test to diagnose this disorder.

Article on hemochromatosis from the Medical Genetics Division, Department of Medicine, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Contact: Rebecca Harmon
Monday, July 29, 1996 World's First Hemochromatosis Clinic Opened At The University Of Pennsylvania Medical Center 21st-Century Genetics Works With 17th-Century Treatment Genetic specialists at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center have established the world's first clinic dedicated to diagnosing and treating hemochromatosis a genetic disorder causing excessive iron build-up in the body. Although the majority of these cases are highly curable, early detection is critical in preventing long-term disease complications from excessive iron that may accumulate in organs of the body, including the heart, pancreas, pituitary gland, liver, muscular joints and under the skin. These complications may include congestive heart failure, diabetes, impotence and early menopause, liver cirrhosis or liver cancer, arthritis, or bronzed skin. According to the national Iron Overload Disease Association, hemochromatosis is the most common of all genetic diseases affecting over one million American adults and children. "Once detected, simple and preventive treatment is available for patients," says Christopher Friedrich, MD, PhD, assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Medical Genetics of the Department of Medicine. "Patients may lead normal, active lives once properly treated," he adds.

Hemochromatosis - Diagnosis, Treatment, Maintenance and Diet
Table of Contents is Below Site Preface In your search for health information regarding hemochromatosis or excess iron you will encounter other groups with web sites of varying degrees of expertise. Be careful of health information from hobbyist. How are we different than those other groups? We have been doing this for over 25 years. When IOD first began its work in 1980 no one else was handling the problems of hemochromatosis, not the medical community, not the insurance industry, not the blood banks and not the government. Early on physicians looked us in the eye and said "....never heard of it." The NIH in Bethesda, Maryland asked " How do you spell it." Through IOD's unremitting efforts that has all been changed. Now more recently, when the topic of excess iron began to heat up, people flocked to us offering help. When the scale of the problem became apparent hemochromatosis became a hot subject. A few of these helpers decided to form their own fringe or splinter groups. IOD does not pay high salaries but instead puts its money into 10 major programs and a number of sub programs. Some differences from some of the other sites are that are that we do not recommend either genetic testing or liver biopsy as necessary for diagnosis or to begin treatment for hemochromatosis.

A laymans nontechnical account of living with hemochromatosis by Alan Mannering.
Haemochromatosis Hemochromatosis my personal experience, by Alan Mannering This website contains facts, information and personal experiences of haemochromatosis
Hi, my name is Alan Mannering , I come from Birmingham in the West Midlands of the UK , and I have haemochromatosis Haemochromatosis is my silent illness. You haven't heard of it? Well not many people have. I was diagnosed quite accidentally when I was 55. This is the most common of all the genetic conditions; it is even more common than cystic fibrosis or muscular dystrophy. The incidence is now reckoned to be between 1 in 200 to 300 with 1 person in 10 being carriers of the mutant gene . It is a condition in which the body does not metabolise iron, which then accumulates over the years in various organs. Notably, it is in the liver and pancreas etc. My own stored iron level was about 2000% too high; this excess having accumulated over 55 years. I was diagnosed purely by chance after a cardiac check at my local hospital. The heart specialist noticed a bronze colouring on my body, which alerted him to the possibility of me having the

(For acute iron poisoning, see Table 307-3 Chronic iron (Fe) overload is characterized by increased focal or generalized deposition within the tissues. On tissue examination, this has been commonly termed hemosiderosis. hemochromatosis has been applied (see Table 128-1 ). Hemochromatosis, an HLA-linked genetic Fe overload disorder, must be differentiated from other inherited disorders accompanied by increased Fe stores (eg, aceruloplasminemia, hypotransferrinemia/atransferrinemia) and from nongenetic Fe overload and Fe overload of undetermined etiology. Hemochromatosis in its primary form is a genetic disorder with a homozygous frequency of 1:200 and a heterozygous frequency of 1:8. The hemochromatosis gene ( HLA-H ) was recently identified on the short arm of chromosome 6 as a single point mutation in which the amino acid cysteine at position 282 changes to a tyrosine (nt 845 A, 845A; Cys 282 Tyr). Of patients with clinical hemochromatosis, 83% are homozygous for this mutation, which encodes for an HLA-A-like molecule. A mutation at nt 187C

Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Primary hemochromatosis is the most common genetic disorder in the US, affecting an estimated 1 of every 200-300 Americans. Similar symptoms may occur from the secondary form of hemochromatosis, which can be caused by other diseases such as thalassemia or sideroblastic anemia. Hemochromatosis may also be caused by having a large number of blood transfusions, particularly in patients who get them for inherited or pre-malignant anemias. Occasionally, it may be seen with hemolytic anemia, porphyria cutanea tarda, excessive oral iron ingestion, or chronic alcoholism. First, excess iron accumulates in the liver and causes

On this page: Excess iron is stored in body tissues, especially the liver, heart, and pancreas. Hemochromatosis, the most common form of iron overload disease, is an inherited disorder that causes the body to absorb and store too much iron. The extra iron builds up in organs and damages them. Without treatment, the disease can cause these organs to fail. Iron is an essential nutrient found in many foods. The greatest amount is found in red meat and iron-fortified bread and cereal. In the body, iron becomes part of hemoglobin, a molecule in the blood that transports oxygen from the lungs to all body tissues. Healthy people usually absorb about 10 percent of the iron contained in the food they eat to meet the body needs. People with hemochromatosis absorb more than the body needs. The body has no natural way to rid itself of the excess iron, so it is stored in body tissues, especially the liver, heart, and pancreas. Top
Genetic or hereditary hemochromatosis is mainly associated with a defect in a gene called HFE , which helps regulate the amount of iron absorbed from food. There are two known important mutations in

    Hemochromatosis (HHC) is an inherited condition of abnormal iron metabolism; it is not a blood disease. Individuals with hemochromatosis absorb too much iron from the diet. Iron cannot be excreted therefore the metal can reach toxic levels in tissues of major organs such as the liver, heart, pituitary, thyroid, pancreas, and synovium (joints). These overburdened organs cease to function properly and eventually become diseased. Therefore, undiagnosed and untreated HHC increases the risk for diseases and conditions such as diabetes mellitus, irregular heart beat or heart attack, arthritis (osteoarthritis, osteoporosis), cirrhosis of the liver or liver cancer, depression, impotence, infertility, hypothyroidism, hypogonadism, and some cancers. Mismanaged iron in the brain is seen in those patients with neurodegenerative diseases: Alzheimer's, early onset Parkinson's, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and Huntington's disease.
    There are presently four types of hemochromatosis:
    Type I also called classic hemochromatosis is due to mutations of HFE, a gene located on chromosome 6. There are more than 20 known mutations of HFE, but the most important for iron loading to date are C282Y and H63D. When a person inherits any two mutations of HFE, the risk for iron overload is increased but inheriting 2 mutated copies of C282Y currently appears to present the greatest risk for iron loading. Type I hemochromatosis is seen mostly in whites (Caucasians), though cases of blacks who are homozygous for C282Y have been documented.
