Hereditary hemochromatosis is caused by defects in a gene called HFE. DNA testing can confirm the presence of the three mutations which are known to cause hemochromatosis: C282Y, H63D and S65C. DNA testing can be done to find out if your family may be at risk.
A confidential HFE genetic testing using buccal (mouth) swab collection is available through Genetrack Biolabs at www.hemochromatosisdna.com.
