Iron Smart Patient Workshop announced for Saturday, November 2nd in Greenville, SC

Iron Smart Patient Workshop

If you have Iron-Out-of-Balance™ (IOB) and have been diagnosed with (or suspect that you may have) Anemia (low iron) or Hemochromatosis (iron overload), you don’t want to miss this potentially life-saving event. Iron Disorders Institute and Bon Secours Health Systems, Inc. are co-hosting the Iron Smart Patient Workshop on Saturday, November 2, 10am-2pm, in the Community Education Room at St. Francis Millennium, 2 Innovation Drive, Greenville. Seating is limited and you may reserve your spot by visiting ironconference.com to register before the deadline of October 30.

The workshop for patients with Hemochromatosis will be held from 10:00-11:30am and the workshop for patients with Anemia will be held from 12:30-2:00pm. All participants are invited to enjoy the Iron Smart Lunch that will be served 11:30-12:30pm offering food options to aid in getting your iron up or down, depending on your particular iron imbalance.

Iron-Out-of-Balance™ (IOB) is any condition where the nutrient iron is present in abnormal quantities (too little or too much) so that the risk of symptoms, illness or premature death may result. IOB can occur regardless of age, gender or ethnicity. Iron Disorders Institute estimates conservatively that one-third of the world’s population has or is at risk of experiencing Iron-Out-of-Balance™ in his or her lifetime. Early detection of IOB is the key to lowering risk of symptoms, illness or premature death. People with iron disorders can have many vague symptoms or health issues including any one or combination of the following: fatigue, joint pain, bone or joint disease (osteoarthritis, osteoporosis), shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, liver trouble, diabetes, infertility, impotence, depression, mood or mental disorders, poor cognitive skills or neurodegenerative diseases.
