Liver iron overload within a UK based population by sex

Abstract:
Estimates of iron-overload, the most common cause of which is haemochromatosis, have been lacking within the UK population. As iron overload is treatable with venesection and/or chelation, early identification has clear utility. Long term consequences of untreated hepatic iron overload/haemochromatosis include cirrhosis, hepatocellular cancer and heart failure. To define the epidemiology of iron overload, we studied 5353 volunteers between the ages of 40 and 73 (Mean = 61 years) as part of the UK Biobank project.
