What is Hemochromatosis?
The process of iron overload is typically slow to develop and may not affect a person's health until they are in their 30s, 40s, or even their 50s or 60s.
While blood levels of iron may be elevated, the primary problem stems from the accumulation of iron in the body's cells, tissues, and organs.
Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and the disease itself can be fatal if it is not identified in time.
