What is Iron Overload?
Iron overload can be caused by genetic conditions such as hereditary haemochromatosis, a condition that involves abnormally high iron absorption from a person’s diet. Hereditary haemochromatosis is caused by variants in genes that control iron absorption.
People receiving multiple blood transfusions are at risk of iron overload because each transfusion has a high iron content.
Patients with the following conditions are often at risk of iron overload:
- Sickle cell disease
- Myelodysplastic syndrome
- Various anaemias
- Cancer survivors
