Introduction to Haemochromatosis

Haemochromatosis is an iron overload disorder. It is a genetic condition that causes people to absorb excessive amounts of dietary iron. This excess absorption may in time lead to serious organ damage.

Haemochromatosis is especially prevalent among the Irish and other Celtic people.

The Irish Haemochromatosis Association C.L.G. (IHA) is a support group for haemochromatosis patients and their families.  The aim of the IHA is to raise awareness of Haemochromatosis both in the medical and the general population as early diagnosis and treatment of this condition prevents organ damage and may even save lives.  

The IHA is compliant with the Charity Regulator’s Code of Compliance and the Data Protection Act.
