THALASSEMIA INTERMEDIA

Posted by Goh Chun Hui on January 15, 2012 at 9:15 AM



Thalassemia intermedia is a condition that is more severe than Thalassemia minor but less severe than Thalassemia major. The different between Thalassemia intermedia and Thalassemia major is that Thalassemia intermedia patients require lesser amount of blood or longer duration time between each blood transfusion section.



Thalassemia intermedia is more difficult to prevent and diagnose by screening before birth. As most Thalassemia intermedia patients only began to have symptoms few years after their birth.



Thalassemia intermedia might lead to bone and other problem in some patients. There is nothing to be done to prevent it, but parents need to know there are some risk if parents themself have the same medical condition. Make sure to bring your children to the doctor, if you realise they have any sign or symptoms of the condition (:

I suppose hydrooxurea will help at your age as it help to minimize the need for your Blood Transfusion. I beileve you doctor, should be able to know condition and judge which method is better for you.
