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 is a
support group for haemochromatosis patients
and their families.
We also welcome those who have a personal
or professional interest in haemochromatosis.
