More about Haemochromatosis
Haemochromatosis is a condition where too much iron is absorbed by the body. After a while, the body starts to deposit the extra iron in other areas of the body. It usually gathers around organs, such as the heart and liver.
Once the iron starts building up it causes uncomfortable symptoms, such as nausea, abdominal pain, constipation and joint pain. It can also lead to liver damage, heart failure and diabetes.
