Thalassemia minor is consider an common condition around the world. A person with Thalassemia is unable to produce normal functioning haemoglobin in the blood.
However, Thalassemia minor patients normally live a normal life like anyone else. Although some patients are advise to have a higher iron content in their daily diet and also other supplements like folic acid. Fortunately Thalassemia minor do not require any blood transfusion, in order to survive (:

I have a 5 years old son with Alpha Thalassemia trait/G6PD deficiency/Ovalocytosis
Unfortunately, we dont have a paediatric haemotologist in my city, I'll go to Singapore when I save enough. Any doctor to recommend?
For now, I will just make sure that he do not eat gluten.
Do you know what food else to avoid for Alpha Thalassemia trait?
