Iron Overload

Iron overload is a condition marked by an increase in serum iron, a decreased TIBC, an increased % transferrin saturation, and an increased ferritin level.

Iron overload can be a genetic disease called Hemochromatosis or a non-genetic variant called hemosiderosis. Both conditions are caused by an excess absorption of iron, which leads to deposition of excess iron in the tissues, especially the liver.
