Too much iron can cause diabetes

According to reports from American, common disease hemochromatosis is a major risk for developing diabetes, not to mention other diseases including congestive heart failure.
Hemochromatosis is characterised by too much iron in the bloodstream, and is recognised by skin colour. A slight bronze sheen means iron accumulatio, and can lead to ‘bronze diabetes,’ a rare and insulin-dependent form of the disease.
The disease is preventable if recognised at an early stage, and is easy to treat. However, early signs mimic a variety of other diseases, and may confuse healthcare professionals and patients alike.
The balance of minerals in the body has a dramatic influence on health, as numerous studies have confirmed. Iron is just one essential mineral that either a surfeit, or deficiency can result in major health problems .
