Iron Disorders Institute Guide to Hemochromatosis
Hemochromatosis is one of modern medicine's greatest oversights. A disorder that few Americans are able to pronounce at first glance, it is an inherited disorder of iron metabolism, not a blood disease, that can be fatal if not detected in time. Commonly misdiagnosed as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, impotence, depression, and liver disease, hereditary hemochromatosis is common in people of northern European descent and is most prominent among the Scotch-Irish.
The Iron Disorders Institute Guide to Hemochromatosis is a reference book for home use. It contains helpful charts, diet and nutritional information, treatment guidelines, a glossary of terms, and compelling personal stories of people living with the disorder. Written by the top researchers and experts in university and research hospitals from all over the United States, it is destined to become the definitive source for information about the disorder for millions of families worldwide.
Undetected hemochromatosis frequently is fatal, and that is why it is emerging as one of the most important health issues of the new millenium. It's real, it's common, and it can kill you.
