The Haemochromatosis Society

Who we are

Genetic haemochromatosis (GH) is a genetic disorder causing the body to absorb an excessive amount of iron from the diet: the iron is then deposited in various organs, mainly the liver, but also the heart, endocrine glands such as the pancreas, and joints. This is iron overload. The Haemochromatosis Society is here to SUPPORT people affected by genetic haemochromatosis and their families, to encourage RESEARCH into the condition and its management, and to EDUCATE the medical profession, policy makers, patients and others, to improve the rates and ages of diagnosis. Early diagnosis saves lives. Haemochromatosis if identified early can be readily treated and patients can enjoy a normal lifespan and good quality of life.
