Symptoms include chronic fatigue, arthritis, diabetes, enlarged liver, cirrhosis, weight loss, mood swings, irregular heartbeat, abdominal pain and distention, menstrual irregularities, loss of body hair, impotence, testicular atrophy, changes in skin color, and jaundice.

Increased iron absorption in the gastrointestinal tract may cause lifelong excessive iron absorption and accumulation, and serious health effects, including arthritis, cirrhosis, diabetes, impotence, heart failure, and death can result.

The project provides awareness through educational resources for physicians and patients, data for researchers, as well as opportunities for emotional support for people with the disease. Recent research has shown that HH is the most common genetic disease in the United States, although many people are silent carriers of the genetic mutation. HH can cause children or adults to load and store excess iron from a normal diet. Unless treated, excess iron can damage vital body organs (notably the liver) and eventually cause death.
