What is genetic haemochromatosis?

Genetic haemochromatosis (GH) is a genetic disorder causing the body to absorb an excessive amount of iron from the diet.


Author: Neil McClements


We depend on volunteer and community fundraising to keep going every year. Every penny you raise for the fight against iron overload is vital.

We work closely with healthcare practitioners and clinicians to optimise the care delivered to people with genetic haemochromatosis. Check out our clinical resources.
