Brief description Disorders of iron metabolism are particularly prevalent in Australia and the consequences of excess iron can be severe. Liver disease is frequently associated with iron loading. The commonest form of iron loading can be treated readily, but it is unclear when the first signs of tissue damage occur and thus at what stage treatment should commence. This project will examine in detail the relationship between body iron levels and signs of tissue damage in young subjects with iron loading disease.
