MedlinePlus:33 Hemochromatosis is a disease in which too much iron builds up in your body. your body needs iron but too much of it is toxic. if you have hemochromatosis, you absorb more iron than you need. your body has no natural way to get rid of the extra iron. it stores it in body tissues, especially the liver, heart, and pancreas. the extra iron can damage your organs. without treatment, it can cause your organs to fail. there are two types of hemochromatosis. primary hemochromatosis is an inherited disease. secondary hemochromatosis is usually the result of something else, such as anemia, thalassemia, liver disease, or blood transfusions. many symptoms of hemochromatosis are similar to those of other diseases. not everyone has symptoms. if you do, you may have joint pain, fatigue, general weakness, weight loss, and stomach pain. your doctor will diagnose hemochromatosis based on your medical and family histories, a physical exam, and the results from tests and procedures. treatments include removing blood (and iron) from your body, medicines, and changes in your diet. nih: national heart, lung, and blood institute

MalaCards: Hemochromatosis, also known as hereditary hemochromatosis, is related to hepatitis and porphyria. An important gene associated with Hemochromatosis is HFE (hemochromatosis), and among its related pathways are SLC-mediated transmembrane transport and Insulin receptor recycling. The drug deferoxamine mesylate and the compounds iron and ascorbic acid have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, heart and skin, and related mouse phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and liver/biliary system.

Genetics Home Reference:21 Hemochromatosis is a disorder that causes the body to absorb too much iron from the diet. The excess iron is stored in the body's tissues and organs, particularly the skin, heart, liver, pancreas, and joints. Because humans cannot increase the excretion of iron, excess iron can overload and eventually damage tissues and organs. For this reason, hemochromatosis is also called an iron overload disorder.

NIH Rare Diseases:42 Hemochromatosis is a disease in which too much iron builds up in the body.  this extra iron is toxic to the body and can damage the organs. early symptoms of hemochromatosis are nonspecific and may include fatigue, joint pain, abdominal pain, and loss of sex drive. later signs and symptoms can include arthritis, liver disease, diabetes, heart abnormalities, and skin discoloration.hemochromatosis may be acquired or hereditary. hereditary hemochromatosis is classified by type depending on the age of onset and other factors such as genetic cause and mode of inheritance. to learn more about the specific types of hereditary hemochromatosis click on the disease names below: hemochromotosis type 1hemochromatosis type 2hemochromatosis type 3hemochromatosis type 4there is also a neonatal form of hemochromatosis:neonatal hemochromatosis last updated: 5/21/2012
