THALASSEMIA MAJOR

Posted by Goh Chun Hui on January 19, 2012 at 8:10 AM



Thalassemia major is the most severe form of Thalassemia. A person with Thalassemia major will require a lifetime of monthly blood transfusions. Patients usually have sign & symptoms and get diagnose within few months or early years of life.



Some Thalassemia intermedia patients might become Thalassemia major after needing to require more offen regular blood transfusions.The only cure currently for most Thalassemia major is bone marrow Transplant (BMT), but it require a matched donor and is best to be done during early childhood.



However the life span of Thalassemia major had been extended with proper chelater and treatment for patients.



Lastly, hope more good news will release in the near future on new treatment and cure for Thalassemia major (:

Thanks so much for blogging! I am 43 yrs. old and have been wanting to communicate with other adults who need monthly transfusions like I do. I feel so alone in dealing with it. I started needing them about 2 yrs. ago. I am taking Exjade instead though. My diagnosis is genaric - anemia from bone marrow not making enough Hemoglobin. I'm rare and out there on my own - not Thassema, not Fanconi, not Diamond Blackfan, not Sickle Cell . . . so on. It is difficult to join a particular group because I'm technically - not it.
