Iron is an essential metal for life, however, its presence should not exceed a certain amount. If the amount of iron in the blood is too high, it could be an hyperferritinemia. In this term, we hear the name of ferritin. It is a glycoprotein located within the liver cells, which binds the iron to a sugar. Iron has for function to capture and fix the oxygen air atoms inspired by the lungs and transport them to the cells of the human body. Despite these important roles, too much iron is dangerous because the iron has a pro-oxidant effect. This excess causes damage such as injury to the liver, heart, pancreas, endocrine glands and joints. Many diseases can be caused by iron excess. The hemochromatosis is characterized by the appearance in man of about forty years and later for women because of menstruation, is responsible for fairly pronounced symptoms. An intense physical but also mental fatigue, joint pains (especially in the hands) and a voluminous liver are among the most telltale signs of this disease. In front of a tired adult, few doctors have the reflex to direct the patient to a simple and inexpensive examination, the rate of iron overload is obtained by measuring the ratio of transferrin saturation. In the presence of an unusually high rate, the diagnosis will be checked by a genetic test in the patient and his family to track those who would eventually be affected or at risk.
