Hemochromatosis was for many years thought to be a rare genetic disorder. But today we know that it results from the inheritance of an abnormal recessive gene from each parent. One in every 150 to 250 white people is affected, research shows. It’s less common among blacks and practically nonexistent among Asians. The disease rarely […]Read More WHAT IS HEPCIDIN?
Hemochromatosis is a condition in which there is too much iron in the body. It is also called iron overload. Causes Hemochromatosis may be a genetic disorder passed down through families. • People with this type absorb too much iron through their digestive tract. Iron builds up in the body. The liver, heart, and pancreas […]Read More HEMOCHROMATOSIS (from Medline)
Hereditary hemochromatosis is a disorder that causes the body to absorb too much iron from the diet. The excess iron is stored in the body’s tissues and organs, particularly the skin, heart, liver, pancreas, and joints. Because humans cannot increase the excretion of iron, excess iron can overload and eventually damage tissues and organs. For […]Read More WHAT IS HEREDITARY HEMOCHROMATOSIS?
Here is a link… I’m still waiting on the results on what caused my pneumonia. It happened so fast I’m stil in awe of how rapidly I declined from Saturday night at work until Monday unable to breathe? How did that happen. Without a definitive diagnosis I won’t know? http://newsroom.ucla.edu/releases/iron-overload-disease-causes-rapid-growth-of-potentially-deadly-bacteria-ucla-study-findsRead More PNEUMONIA WHAT CAUSED IT?
Family want to raise Hemochromatosis awareness. Great article. Hope it works! In my birth family a few more generations will die from Hemochromatosis. They think I’m actually faking it. There is even a family nurse who has stated HH is psychiatric. My […]Read More FAMILY RAISES AWARENESS OF HEMOCHROMATOSIS
I am certain my parents lied to me….I am not 100% French. Somewhere, somehow a little Celtic blood snuck into both families in order for me to inherit an H63d gene from each parent. I’m changing my ancestry origins to 80% French and 20% Celtic. Here is something to read…… http://irishamerica.com/2013/08/the-great-hunger-and-the-celitc-gene/I […]Read More FAMINE AND IRON OVERLOAD.
Hereditary Hemochromatosis is too much iron in the human body. It is the equivalent to a rusty boat sunken at sea. At sea rusticles are formed as the wrought iron begins to oxidize in the water. It is a bacteria slowly eating away at the metal. Too much iron accelerates mitochondrial decay and inflicts system-wide […]Read More RUSTICLES
A share from another site: http://celticcurse.org/cirrhosis-alcohol-ignorance-and-prejudice-welcome-to-hereditary-hemochromatosis/ ******************************* My next post https://h63d.com/2016/06/21/auntie-mabkes-little-bottke-of-booze/ is from a Washington Post article mentioned in the above post. It is eerily similar to what happened to me. Unfortunate it made me fearful of the medical profession which led to my diagnosis with HH being delayed by several years… Sometimes the truth […]Read More The LUCKY ONES 🍀
