The hereditary hemochromatosis test is a blood test that helps assess people who might have a condition called hereditary hemochromatosis. Hereditary hemochromatosis is a genetic condition meaning that it can be passed from parent to child and found within families. The clinical symptoms of hereditary hemochromatosis occur because this genetic condition affects how the body accumulates and stores iron and frequently causes it to store too much of it.
This specific hereditary hemochromatosis genetic test checks for C282Y mutations in relation to this gene. Hereditary hemochromatosis is a recessive condition meaning that two copies of the mutation are typically required before one expresses symptoms of iron overload. Having a negative genetic test for hereditary hemochromatosis does not always mean that one does not have the genetic condition. Iron overload symptoms in hereditary hemochromatosis can vary from person to person and any negative findings have to be considered based on evidence of iron overload in one's clinical symptoms.
Having a positive test for hereditary hemochromatosis can mean a lot of things and positive hereditary hemochromatosis genetic test results should be evaluated with the help of a licensed medical provider. Often, additional lab studies such as measuring iron levels and other iron-related markers will need to be done before an appropriate plan of management can be done for the patient with a positive hereditary hemochromatosis genetic test.
