Hemochromatosis - causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, pathology

1399 ratings | 102950 views
What is hemochromatosis? Hemochromatosis is a genetic disorder where the body isn’t able to regulate its iron absorption. Iron levels in the body build up over time and damage the liver as well as other organs, through the generation of free radicals. Find more videos at http://osms.it/more.

Hey! i love all your videos!! They help me a lot in getting through med school. I have a suggestion maybe its not a big thing but can you make the same person talk during one video? It is just a suggestion and keep it up bc you have helped me a LOT!!! thanks!!!

so its managed by donating blood?

+Samantha Newton the water in some areas could be where all the extra metals are coming from. even the cooking utensils. if its not stainless steel then it could be giving off metals in the food
Samantha Newton (10 days ago)
win don ya, or at least that’s how my moms is handled. But they can’t use the blood because of the high levels of iron so they basically just dispose of it

Do NOT skip phlebotomies. As difficult as it may be, it is certainly better than the ICU. Don’t let people assume the worst when it comes to your liver and alcoholism. Any KNOWLEDGEABLE doctor should know the effect hemochromatosis has on your liver. Fight the good fight and in the meantime keep those you love nice and warm.

I have pernicious anaemia now they are saying I have this to. Is it humanly possible to have both. I have diabetes and erthyrodermic psoriasis too . I feel like I’m dying most days and I’m only 35.

Can you please make a video on hematopoiesis.

I dont understand something- you said the Secondary cause was frequent blood transfusion. I havent had a blood transfusion in my life, and I dont have the primary genetic mutation. So why is my iron saturation high?
GBoz94 (4 months ago)
a lot of this went over my head. Im not so good at chemistry anymore...

Dr Douglas B Kell at the university of Manchester says that ferritin is a by product protein of your organs breaking down due to iron overload. He said that we should not have ferritin in our blood. Very new discovery.

I was told by my doctor that I had this condition for years but it never showed up before because I had menstrual periods-now that I don't anymore she thinks I need to go to a gastroenterology Dr who told me I need a liver biopsy--why not just donate blood?
carp3tstain (1 month ago)
They are testing for cirrhosis, hemosiderosis (iron overload), and checking levels of iron deposition within the hepatocytes (liver cells). They probably want to detect the specific iron concentrations and potential damage to that organ. They will more than likely do blood work in conjunction with this to get a broader picture of what is going on. I know I'm responding to this 3 month old reply. I hope this helps and all is well with you.

how is ferritin increasing if HFE is defective, meaning that iron cant get into cells???
OnlyMoschops392 (6 months ago)
So, about enterocytes, part of the intestines. Thank you, Osmosis, for teaching me about enterocytes and their role in absorbing nutrients. But how do enterocytes avoid absorbing the majority of the nutrients from the chyme that enters the small intestines?

My blood work came back with extremely high iron and I’m really worried. Can this be something else ?
My Channel (8 months ago)
I'm a doctor you have any doubts means feel free to ask me
Leslie Diaz (8 months ago)
veiledviolet I’m being referred to a hematologist/oncologist as well. I hope you’re well too. Hearing what can happen to your body with extreme levels of iron is making me so worried. May I ask what were your symptoms, if you had any?
Karlee R (8 months ago)
Mine did too! Just had my second blood test and my total iron and the percent saturation are both high. My doctor might be sending me to a blood specialist. I don't have any family members with it either so I'm super worried but trying to stay positive. I hope you get everything figured out.

I found out i had this a few years back. Dr's found a enlarged liver and thought I was a alcoholic. After telling them I could literally count on my hands and toes how many drinks I had over my life I was diagnosed with this. Took me over a year to get ferretin levels down to where i could just start doing phlebotomy as occasional maintenance. Screwed me up big time.
Carrie Fawcett (10 days ago)
How old were you at diagnosis , just curious
Alexander Lewis (9 months ago)
What number was your iron level back then, before you got it under control? If you don't mind me asking. Thanks in advance.
Nicolas Gonzalez Medina (11 months ago)
So what is the difference between hemochromatosis and hemosiderosis? hemosiderosis dont produce celular damage right?
Altaf Ali Naushad (6 months ago)
Nicolas Gonzalez Medina it’s just excess iron being deposited in tissues as hemosiderin pigment. Can happen in any of the iron overload states they mentioned.

Frequent blood transfusions may cause hemochromatosis because the amount of iron released after this blood is broken down, why that doesn't happen when someone's own blood broke down?!
Kabutar111 (1 year ago)
the reason is AMOUNT , as patient which require regular transfusions have much higher amount of Fe in body generated as compared to normal person where body can reutilise iron generated from breakdown of old rbc to make new
Anasuya Mukherjee (1 year ago)
elham alqattesh transfused blood per se is not causing the damage. As they have told, damage is due to the Excess Iron, whose source may be either the Transfused blood or excess absorption due to some genetic mutation. A normal person can excrete only up to 1 mg of iron through the various routes, as they have told in the initial part of the video, leaving the externally administered iron(I,e. the blood), to gradually accumulate over a long period of time. The oxidative damage due to this excess Iron is what causes the disease. A normally functioning person will not have this extra iron accumulation, coz his intake and output will balance each other.
elham alqattesh (1 year ago)
Anasuya Mukherjee 👍🏻👍🏻thnx But the question is why the damage of transfused blood causes hemochromatosis while the the damage of own blood don't ?
Anasuya Mukherjee (1 year ago)
elham alqattesh Hence, there's this extra iron accumulation, once the TRANSFUSED cells too get senescent and are also broken down. Further transfusions, again to maintain the CIRCULATING POOL OF RBCs just adds on to that! Hope, it helps ! Sorry, for this lengthy banter!☺
