Symptom #2: Impotence

Impotence or erectile dysfunction occurs when there is inability to maintain or develop a penile erection during sexual activity. It can result in relationship difficulties, issues with self image, and other psychological consequences.

Causes of impotence include cardiovascular disease, neurological issues, diabetes, hormonal insufficiencies, side effect of medication, psychological reasons, and more. Impotence can also occur in patients with hemochromatosis as a result of hypogonadism. Hypogonadism can occur in hemochromatosis patients due to pituitary or testicular iron deposition.
