It's a genetic fault. To get it, both parents must be carriers of the fault.

Even with both parents carrying the fault, it may never affect you, but you put yourself at risk with a diet that's high in iron.

Interesting aside: Carriers should also never eat raw shellfish, as it can be lethal to people with haemochromatosis. In fact, they are advised to avoid shellfish altogether.
Carries of the gene can also suffer haemochromatic effects

If you're not a carrier you never will be.

It wouldn't need to be mentioned on your life policy, they get the results directly off your doctor if you have one. This is why I was advised against the test when my uncle's haemochromatosis became apparent.

Apparently one shouldn't never get a HIV/AIDS test from your GP either, even a precautionary one. Life Insurance policies will deem you to be more likely to have unprotected sex and hence more likely to get a serious disease and will bump up your premium significantly. Always go anonymously to the clinic for these.
Thats why most GPs put fake names on the blood samples.

Something to do with your ability to deal with food poisioning from it when you've a high iron count, I think.

I'll check it up there. Trying to remember where I got the info from.

Haemochromatosis and Hemochromatosis? Are they the same thing?

Now Hemochromatosis can affect the liver, as far as I know.

Are these both the same thing? I always spelt this 'Hemochromatosis' so I tried good old faithful google so solve this conundrum, however it has a similar but not the same definition for both Hemochromatosis and Haemochromatosis. Are they both the same or different? Or am I going m M MAD out of my mind?
