What is hemochromatosis? Hemochromatosis is a genetic disorder where the body isn’t able to regulate its iron absorption. Iron levels in the body build up over time and damage the liver as well as other organs, through the generation of free radicals. This video explores the pathophysiology behind iron overload, common complications, important clinical signs and symptoms, and potential treatment options.
