The Iron Overload Diseases Association, Inc., is a voluntary, non-profit organization dedicated to leading the search for individuals who have undiagnosed hemochromatosis and preventing the health problems that may result. Hereditary hemochromatosis is a metabolic disorder characterized by increased absorption of dietary iron. Without appropriate treatment, excessive iron may accumulate in the liver, heart, pancreas, and other organs, causing organ dysfunction and tissue damage. Established in 1981, the association is also committed to providing information and support to affected individuals and their families; educating the general public; promoting and supporting research; and pressing for earlier diagnosis and more effective treatment for hemochromatosis. The association acts as an international clearinghouse for affected individuals, family members, and physicians; provides telephone consultations; offers referrals to genetic counseling and support groups; promotes patient advocacy; and conducts an annual medical symposium as well as conference meetings between patients and healthcare professionals.
