Being a healthy living person is what everyone hope to be, especially for Thalassemia Major where patients had to come for regular blood transfusion, having to take/use iron chelaters to get rid of excess iron in the body, come for Full Blood Count almost everytime before blood transfusion, Cross Match before blood transfusion, doctor visit, blood test and screening to be done every year things like that.Supplements & prescibe medication need to be taken everyday. On top of these patients have their career job or studys, which they might not be able to fully attend due to their medical treament/appointment things like that.
There are too many disadvantage of being a thalassemia major patient. But what a bless, recently good news had been release on the success of gene therapy in Thalassemia Major Patient had given us the hope that there will be the cure for Thalassemia Major soon in the future. I am so excited.
So not to make this post too long. In conclusion wishing all Thalassemia Patients will stay positive going what they have to do with their treatment and I am sure more good news will arrived soon and hopefully every Thalassemia Major Patients received their cure and all of us live a happy fulfilling life (:
