Hemochromatosis is a genetic (or hereditary) condition in which the body accumulates excess amounts of iron. Hemochromatosis is caused by a primary genetic defect or secondary to other diseases, such as thalassemia or sideroblastosis. It can also be caused by multiple blood transfusions. The disease may lead to the development of diabetes, skin pigment changes, cardiac problems, and arthritis.
Each July, the Iron Disorders Institute sponsors National Hemochromatosis Screening and Awareness Month to raise awareness for Hemochromatosis and the complications that can arise from it going undetected. Those with this genetic condition can easily lower their iron levels and prevent its potentially damaging effects through blood donation and diet adjustments.
Businesses typically distribute health pamphlets and hold testing days to promote awareness holidays, but you can make National Hemochromatosis Screening and Awareness Month fun for employees with promotional executive travel games, logo travel games, custom electronic games, and custom game gifts.
