Venesection for Haemochromatosis

 

Haemochromatosis is an inherited (genetic) disorder which causes the body to absorb an excessive amount of iron from a person’s diet. The excess iron is stored in various organs – mostly the liver. This iron may also be stored in the heart, pancreas, testicles/ovaries, joints and skin.

 

Treating Haemochromatosis is quite simple, it consists regular removal of blood. This is known as venesection.
