Hereditary haemochromatosis is one of the most common genetic disorders. It is characterized by progressive accumulation of iron in various organs. ViennaLab assays identify the most common mutations causing iron overload.

Haemochromatosis

  • Most forms of haemochromatosis are caused by mutations in the HFE gene; less common forms carry mutations in the TFR2 or FPN1 gene.
  • Haemochromatosis can lead to liver cirrhosis, liver cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and cardiopathies.
  • If treatment is started before organs are damaged, these associated conditions can be prevented.
  • Premature death or organ failure may occur if the condition is left untreated.
  • Therapeutic bleeding is a simple, safe and effective treatment.
  • Thus, early diagnosis allows a virtually normal life for affected individuals.
