Hemocromatosis

Were you looking for information about Hemochromatosis? Hemocromatosis is a common misspelling of hemochromatosis.
 
Hemochromatosis is a type of condition that causes the intestines to absorb more iron than normal, which causes a high amount of iron to be stored by various organs in the body. Over time, these high levels of iron can damage the organs, possibly causing them to fail. The earlier hemochromatosis is detected and treated, the better. If treatment begins before any organs are damaged, associated conditions -- such as liver disease, heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes -- can often be prevented.
