The term "hemochromatosis" refers to excess iron in the body. Hereditary hemochromatosis is a type of hemochromatosis caused by a change (sometimes referred to as a variant or mutation) in one of the genes that controls iron absorption from food in the digestive tract. Over time, the excess iron accumulates in tissues throughout the body, leading to iron overload.
