Some iron disorders are inherited and can be confirmed with genetic testing. Examples of these inherited iron disorders where genetic testing is available to the public include sickle cell disease, thalassemia and hemochromatosis. We encourage patients to learn all that they can about genetics through organizations and agencies that specialize in genetic issues and counseling. Visit our News section and Iron Library for more information about genetics, especially the HFE (hemochromatosis gene)worksheets.
