Cause of weight loss due to Haemochromatosis - help required

Post by nknitro » Thu Mar 23, 2006 12:14 pm

Hi there everyone, I'm new to this forum :D

I am presently doing an assignment on haemochromatosis for my medical coursework.
I am aware of the symptoms that are associated with this disorder such as jaundice and weight loss.

I am curently lost as to how the weight loss symptom is induced by this disorder.
I will really appreciate it if anyone can explain or briefly tell me how and why the weight loss occurs if a person suffers from haemochromatosis.

Thanks for any help that you may provide :)
