Course Overview:
Hereditary hemochromatosis is a disorder of iron regulation that can over time lead to widespread organ damage, a variety of chronic disorders, and even death. Early detection may permit treatment before the development of substantial iron overload. The laboratory technologist plays a major role in detecting and controlling this disease. In this course, you will learn about the basics of iron metabolism, the signs and symptoms of hemochromatosis, how it is treated, and the laboratory tests and procedures that are vital to its diagnosis and maintenance.

• Describe basic aspects of normal iron metabolism.
• Explain the pathophysiology of iron overload associated with hereditary hemochromatosis (HH).
• Discuss mutations associated with HH, including prevalence in various ethnic groups and penetrance.
• List early and late clinical signs and symptoms of HH.
• Evaluate screening and confirmatory laboratory tests used in detection and diagnosis of iron overload and HH.
• Describe initial and long-term treatment and management options for HH.
