    It's mainly a genetic disorder, but can also be a side effect of testosterone / steroid use. Body builders etc sometimes get a raised level of red blood cells and therefore need to donate blood on a regular basis. Gives a "high colouring" complexion also. Easily diagnosed on a routine blood test.

    If you suffer from any of these 2 then you might have the disorder
    Hemochromatosis Complications

    If hemochromatosis isn't found and treated early, iron builds up in your body and can lead to:

    Liver disease, including an enlarged liver, liver failure, liver cancer, or cirrhosis (scarring of the liver)
    Heart problems, including arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) and heart failure
    Diabetes, especially in people who have a family history of diabetes
    Joint damage and pain, including arthritis
    Reproductive organ failure, such as erectile dysfunction (impotence), shrinkage of the testicles, and loss of sex drive in men, and absence of the menstrual cycle and early menopause in women
    Changes in skin color that make the skin look gray or bronze
    Underactive pituitary and thyroid glands
    Damage to the adrenal glands

    Well done Willie on highlighting the condition. Some body very close to me has the condition. Can impair a person's life at times.

    Have to get blood taken off. There is an organisation specifically for those with the condition. They held their latest meeting

    last Saturday.

    I have it and in 1 year they had to take 29 pints of blood out of me. It,s so common in the west, that it,s unbelievable.
    I have loads of cousins and friends who have it. I went through hell for 2-3 years but sound now

    Thats great news that you are sound. What the person close to me told me was there is no cure at the moment. They cannot

    eat foods with iron in them.
