An Algorithmic Approach to Diagnosis
Dr. Moyer discusses the latest information on laboratory diagnosis of hereditary hemochromatosis - the most common inherited disease in the United States. Use of a diagnostic testing algorithm for iron overload can identify patients who should undergo genetic testing. This approach can reduce the need for invasive liver biopsy testing. Proper diagnosis and early treatment can prevent the serious consequences of this disease.
