As you know of the danger in iron overloading, so it's very important that you are having proper chelation on order to remove excess iron stored in key organs and tissues. Untreated iron overload progressively damages vital organs in our body. These are the chelaters that were used by Thalassemia Major Patients for chelation. They are Desferal Infusion, Ferriprox (L1) and Exjade chelaters. There's a correlation between chelation therapy and survival in patients with transfusional iron overload. So always remember in mind to keep iron overload out of your life.
