  1. Q 5~~ haemochromatosis n thalassemia ,,,,both r high iron load in body conditions,,,,so must be associated with high hepcidin levels.?? Rather than low???

    1. When hepcidin concentration is low, ferroportin expression is increased, leading to increased iron absorption and export from macrophages.
      Hepcidin deficiency is the main or contributing factor of iron overload in iron-loading anemias such as β-thalassemia. Hepcidin deficiency results from a strong suppressive effect of the high erythropoietic activity in beta-thalassemia on hepcidin expression.

      Hepcidin deficiency is seen in all types of hemochromatosis except Type 4 Hemochromatosis.
