Genetic Hemochromatosis Caution Foods

Iron Rich Foods

Many foods are iron rich foods. Eating these foods will increase the iron levels in your blood almost instantly. Consuming foods that are iron rich can be very beneficial for many people. However, for some people, iron rich foods can be detrimental. For example, if a person has Hemochromatosis, eating iron rich foods can cause more harm than good. In this article, we will review some of the iron rich foods that are out there.

If you are trying to add iron to your diet, or you wish to avoid foods with excessive levels of iron for medical reasons, you should consult your doctor for an appropriate diet for your circumstances.

One thing to remember when dealing with hemochromatosis is thatyou can still enjoy iron rich vegetables because our bodies don't extract much iron from vegetables. Liver is by far the highest meat in iron.

Raw shellfish can have an adverse affect on the bodies of sufferers of this disease. Seeing as how hemochromatosis is hard on the immune system, raw seafood should be avoided because of the chance of digesting bad bacteria.
