Thank you for your query. In Thalassemia Minor
, the Hb tends to remain low despite giving haematinics. I suggest that next time get his serum iron level done and if it is normal then you need not worry.
It is very common for children of this age to get a upper respiratory tract
infection frequently as they are developing their resistance. You need to get tonsillectomy
and/or adenoidectomy done only if indicated by your ENT doctor in consultation with the pediatrician
Wishing you and your son all the best.
