Are you at risk of iron overload?

Iron overload is caused by genetic haemochromatosis (GH) - the most common genetic condition across Merseyside. Yet most people don’t know if they are at risk.

Untreated, the condition can lead to iron overload, where the body is unable to process excess iron - this can lead to potential health problems.

Diagnosed early, haemochromatosis is manageable and not life-limiting.
