  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Coexisting iron accumulation or chronic hepatitis C increases risk of hepatocellular carcinoma.[merckmanuals.com] Other factors that may trigger type 1 PCT include oestrogen, iron and viral infections (especially hepatitis C).[dermnetnz.org] A diet high in unsaturated fat increases susceptibility, as does obesity.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    Individuals suffering iron deficiency might take oral iron supplements and increase their dietary iron intake, while individuals suffering from pernicious anemia might receive[livestrong.com] Eat more meats for better iron absorption. Vitamin C also increases iron absorption. Try eating citrus fruits or bell pepper when you consume your iron.[gluten.org] Since rapid cell regeneration increases the patient’s iron and folate requirements, supplemental iron and folic acid replacement is necessary to prevent iron deficiency anemia[innvista.com]

  • Heavy Metal Poisoning

    In addition, non-inflammatory degenerative disease of the sensorimotor nerves (sensorimotor polyneuropathy) may advance to progressive deterioration (atrophy).[rarediseases.org] Low iron increases toxicity of cadmium and lead, causing impaired cognitive function.[drmyhill.co.uk] . • Data suggests that low dietary intake of vitamin D may increase accumulation of lead in bones, whereas low dietary intake of vitamin C and iron may increase lead levels[slideshare.net]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Hemochromatosis is an inherited condition associated with increased iron storage. Iron buildup can damage the pancreas and other organs.[labtestsonline.org] Delay in starting GFD increases the risk of osteoporosis, gastrointestinal malignancies, iron deficiency anemia, infertility, and other autoimmune disorders.[dx.doi.org]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare condition in pregnancy which is characterised by symmetrical progressive ascending polyneuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pradal, Abnormally increased iron concentration in basal ganglia in Shy-Drager syndrome MR imaging and autonomic study: RM imagem e estudo autonômico, Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria[oadoi.org] An 81-year-old man presented with fever, confusion and rapidly-progressive flaccid tetraparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    The electromyogram showed sensorimotor polyneuropathy markedly of movement, with axonal character of symmetric distribution and severe axonal loss in distal and proximal areas[archivesofmedicine.com] […] concentration was slightly elevated; and (f) heme oxygenase I mRNA was increased approximately three-fold.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ferrokinetic studies in one patient also demonstrated decreased erythropoiesis (plasma iron turnover was 70 per cent of normal).[nejm.org]
