Hemochromatosis is a type of medical condition that results in large amounts of iron being stored in organs within the body. The organs that are typically affected include the liver, pancreas, heart, and pituitary gland. If left untreated, this condition can cause serious damage and even failure of these organs. Possible signs of this condition include fatigue, weakness, weight loss, stomach pain, and joint pain.
