This guide explains the rarer form of non-HFE genetic haemochromatosis, called Ferroportin Disease. It's also known as type 4 or SLC40A1-related GH.

Although this form of the condition is considered rare, increasing levels of genetic testing for this variant are revealing more people at risk of Ferroportin Disease.
