Hereditary hemochromatosis is a condition of improper iron absorption in the body caused by a mutation to the HFE gene on chromosome 6. The protein that HFE codes for is thought to regulate the activity of transferrin, another protein that transports iron in the blood. When iron cannot move through the body as it should, excess amounts are stored in the liver and other organs causing damage.
