    It is pretty difficult to have too much iron in your system, unless you are taking a supplement. In general, you might experience a lack of bowl movements and in extreme cases, vomiting, kidney and heart problems. It is quite rare, though.

    Iron overload can occur in people who have haemochromatosis, which is an inborn metabolic defect characterized by increased absorption and accumulation of iron in body tissues.  Symptoms include skin pigmentation, diabetes, enlargement of the spleen and liver, heart failure, and general weakness and lassitude.  Treatment requires regular removal of blood to decrease the concentration of iron.
