Hereditary Hemochromatosis
June 2014 Issue

Each month hundreds of thousands of consumers and healthcare professionals search the National Library of Medicine's Medline database seeking the latest information on their disease/condition. Conducting a thorough and effective Medline search is both a time consuming and daunting task. At Medifocus, we have developed an effective solution to this problem: each month our staff of expert researchers searches Medline for the latest advances in research and clinical medicine for over 70 diseases / conditions. We do this with one goal in mind: to empower you to effectively take control over your health.

What Our Customers Are Saying...

"The MediFocus Guidebook on Hereditary Hemochromatosis was not only extremely informative and well-written but it also explained the genetic aspects of this condition in a way that can be readily understood even by people who donít have a medical or scientific background. I was pleased to learn that so much research is ongoing worldwide to try to better understand the causes of this condtion and, hopefully, come up with a way to prevent this disorder from happening in the first place."
Perth Amboy, New Jersey

"Your Guidebook on Hereditary Hemochromatosis contains a wealth of information that has helped our family answer many of the questions we had about this relatively obscure genetic disease. The Guidebook allowed us to fully understand the disease and know what to ask...and who to ask to additional information."
St. Joseph, Missouri
