Please could you give me details as my husband's iron count is too high in his liver. I don't know if it has a medical term and what can be done about it?

Irene, it’s called haemochromatosis and the easiest way to treat it is to donate blood regularly. If you’re interested in more information on haemochromatosis, you can mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za and I’ll “cut ‘n paste” you something. Good luck.
