An inherited metabolic iron disorder, most common in people of Northern European descent, it causes the body to absorb and store excess iron - without treatment, the disease can lead to liver, heart, and pancreatic failure, as well as arthritis and diabetes."The Hemochromatosis Cookbook" presents readers with a mouth-watering collection of easy-to-prepare recipes that can aid in reducing iron absorption; helpful menu plans, tips and tricks for busy schedules and cooking for company; plus a chart showing the iron contents of common foodstuffs.It also includes a brief overview of other iron imbalances, such as acquired iron overload and anemia.
