He may have a genetic disease called haemochromatosis (see http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/hemochromatosis/) Symptoms develop typically after 30 years of age, and will show up earlier in men than in women (as women lose blood by menstruation which keeps the iron levels lower)
If it is confirmed, it is treated by regularly donating blood to get rid of excess iron in the blood.
