Hey guys! I am at the point of choosing an EPQ topic and was thinking of doing it on haemochromatosis but I cannot think of a question or narrow it down. May I have some suggestions for it?

Hi you can consider the following:-

1. Risks of iron therapy for mild iron deficiency anaemia - to treat or not to treat?
Comment: When anaemia (= low haemoglobin (Hb) level in the blood) is only mild e.g. Hb of 10-11 mg/100 mL in an adult male (normal 13-17), it is debatable whether treatment with iron is a good idea, partly because dietary changes may be just as effective, and because of the risk of haemochromatosis; at the same time, an Hb level of this magnitude is unlikely to lead to symptoms like fatigue or malaise, so the patient may be loathe to take tablets.

2. Haemochromatosis in Africa from the use of iron cooking pots.

3. Haemochromatosis due to a genetic deficiency of hepcidin.

If you need info or sources of info after you select a topic, PM me.
