Hemochromatosis is a disorder in which the body can build up too much iron in the skin, heart, liver, pancreas, pituitary gland and joints. Too much iron is toxic to the body, and over time, high iron levels can damage tissues and organs and lead to.
Hemochromatosis is a condition in which the body absorbs too much iron from food, leading to iron overload in organs and tissues. Hemochromatosis is caused by mutations in genes involved in iron metabolism and regulation, and this panel tests for genetic variants that are known to affect these processes.
This panel is designed for individuals with a family history of hemochromatosis or individuals with symptoms of the condition, such as fatigue, joint pain, and abdominal pain. Genetic testing can confirm a diagnosis, provide information on disease severity and progression, and inform treatment and management decisions. Testing can also inform family planning decisions and provide reassurance for unaffected family members.
The analysis takes into consideration the mutation of germline DNA, it investigates SNP and Indel mutations up to 150 bp.
