Hemochromotosis

Were you looking for information about Hemochromatosis? Hemochromotosis is a common misspelling of hemochromatosis.
 
Hemochromatosis is a condition that occurs when too much iron is absorbed in the intestines over a long period of time. As a result, large amounts of iron are stored in various organs of the body (such as the liver, pancreas, and heart), which may cause these organs to fail if left untreated. Possible symptoms of hemochromatosis include fatigue, weight loss, and stomach pain. Treatment for this condition typically involves phlebotomy, which is a process that involves removing blood once or twice a week for several months or longer.
