Excess iron in vital organs, even in mild cases, increases the risk for liver disease (cirrhosis, cancer), heart attack or heart failure, diabetes mellitus, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, hypothyroidism, hypogonadism, numerous symptoms and in some cases premature death.

According to doctors, people with iron overload syndrome should avoid certain foods.

Iron Overload: Foods To Avoid

In general, a normal balanced diet is recommended. Experts say that avoiding iron in food is actually not necessary.

But:

• Alcohol should be avoided since alcohol consumption increases the risk of developing cirrhosis and liver cancer.

• Ingestion of high doses of vitamin C in patients with iron overload may lead to fatal abnormal heart rhythms.

• Raw seafood should be avoided since patients with hemochromatosis are at risk of acquiring bacterial infections that flourish in iron-rich environments.
