Haemochromatosis Society

Description

Our Society is here to support people affected by genetic haemochromatosis and their families.  We also encourage research into the condition and its management and educated the medical profession, policy makers, patients and others, to improve the rates and ages of diagnosis.

The charity was founded in 1991 by people affected by genetic haemochromatosis, is run by people affected by genetic haemochromatosis, and exists to provide benefits for people affected by genetic haemochromatosis

Haemochromatosis, or GH (Genetic Haemochromatosis), is a genetic disorder causing the body to absorb an excessive amount of iron from the diet. The iron is then deposited in various organs, mainly the liver, but also the pancreas, heart, endocrine glands, and joints.

If identified early, Haemochromatis can be readily treated and patients can enjoy a normal lifespan and good quality of life.
