Thalassemia

Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder caused by genetic mutations that affect the production of hemoglobin. The disorder can lead to anemia, fatigue, organ damage, and other health issues. Thalassemia is most common among individuals of Mediterranean descent, and it can be managed with regular blood transfusions and medication. Early screening and diagnosis are important for ensuring prompt treatment and reducing the risk of complications. In addition, recent technological advances have helped reduce the severity of complications in affected individuals, improving their quality of life.
