Hemocromatose

Were you looking for information about Hemochromatosis? Hemocromatose is a common misspelling of hemochromatosis.
 
Approximately one million people in the United States have a medical condition known as hemochromatosis. This condition results when too much iron is absorbed by the intestines over a long period of time. As a result, this causes high levels of iron to be stored in various organs of the body, such as the liver, pancreas, and heart. If left untreated, hemochromatosis can cause serious damage to these organs. Treatment for this condition typically involves removing one pint of blood once or twice a week for several months or longer.
