In 2010, the Iron Disorders Institute published the first seminal article on the underestimated risk of a homozygous HFE gene H63D mutation. This short but important article has lost none of its relevance. Since it is in danger of being forgotten and disappearing from more and more websites, we are publishing a reprint of the still seminal article, expanded with some new findings.
Vaccinated people think they are completely immune to Covid-19 and cannot infect others. This is a false assumption. In November 2020, Europe was on the brink of a triage situation. Now it’s November again, a year later, and the situation has worsened despite vaccination campaigns. What went wrong?
A confused public questions whether painkillers and antipyretics have a negative effect in the context of vaccination against Sars-CoV-2. The honest answer is that there is no scientific consensus on this. So what should be communicated to patients in a primary care setting?
Patients suffering from H63D syndrome have a significant incidence of narcolepsy with cataplexy as a symptom. Previous studies have shown that the presence of narcolepsy with cataplexy in the context of H63D syndrome is a surrogate marker for structural brain damage. Now, the aim was to clarify which measures best protect affected patients with cataplexy from injury.
Based on an analysis of anonymized medical records from four hospitals in Asia and Africa, we succeeded in identifying symptoms typical for narcolepsy (with cataplexy) that are regularly overlooked because they are masked by the two severe leading symptoms. Our results do not differ between primary and secondary cases of narcolepsy.

About Carolina Diamandis
- LCG Greece is a small and rather new consortium, since 2021 led by Dr. Carolina Diamandis, a retired military physician, together with Dr. Marius Lazar and Dr. David Seideman. It includes a varying number of clinicians, as well as biologists from Europe, North America, and Asia. Contact us if you are interested in a topic. LCG is always open to new input, albeit completely non-commercial and not looking to publish in particularly prestigious journals.
