Wiseman's have great deals around this time of year though.

Three of them are on the Castletown intermediate team.

I'm probably a carrier of the defect

My father is a carrier, and my uncle has developed the condition recently.

I asked my doctor about it, Ireland has one of the highest rates in the world of Haemochromatosis gene-defect carriers.

DO NOT GET TESTED. This test would go on your permanent medical record, which your GP would have to submit for any mortgage application. This would make payment protection insurance and life insurance much more expensive, just for being a carrier - which in no way gaurantees you'll develop the condition.

Unless you are in your late 40s and upwards, you need not concern yourself with this.

If you are really concerned about the condition then get your iron levels tested every now and again. Too much iron in your blood for long periods will cause damange to your liver.

In my uncle's case though he was doing himself no favours with a steak for dinner 6 days a week and copious Guinnesses on top of it. His liver had turned almost completely into fatty tissue.


Edit. And my father's people come from west cork.

I have it very severely. I have to "give blood" every month to keep from getting sick. And a guinness or Murphy's sends me into a woozy kinda of iron overload. YOu must limit your red meat consumption and never, ever take vitamin supplements with iron in them. Depending on your level of affliction it could kill you. I got into a friend of my mother's iron supplements once when I was a smallie and collasped into a coma for a few days. Had to go through kelation therapy for years after that but I haven't had to in a few years.

It's rare that you're iron levels would be that high when you're young. It takes years for them to build up to the stage where they are dangerous. That's why it only seems to take effect in your forties or fifties.

Even though I have it, my Iron levels are quite low. At one stage I had to take supplements to bring them back up to normal levels.

Death by haemochromatis also takes years, it's not an instant process. It's a constant chipping away at the health of your organs.

Is this because their iron levels are too high, or they're just being tested. I've gotta get checked every 6 months.
