10 Causes of Diabetes
Hemochromatosis is a rare disease, and it only affects about 200,000 patients in the United States each year, and it is very treatable. Hemochromatosis occurs when the body creates too much iron. When this happens, the iron needs to be stored, and this can create problems and damage to many areas of the body, including the pancreas. When damage occurs to the pancreas, this can cause the right amount of insulin that needs to be created to be affected, which can cause the patient to also develop diabetes as a secondary disease to the hemochromatosis.
