What is genetic haemochromatosis?

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



Fundraising ideas

Our charity relies upon the selfless support of donors and fundraisers to provide much-needed help to people affected by genetic haemochromatosis. Can you help us fundraise?



Information for healthcare professionals

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