Does thalassemia minor type cause any symptoms?
Please take folate/multivitamin-minerals supplements and give feedback!
Hi! thanks for writing to us!
You are correct, thal minor and carries state do not cause any symptom. Still, I would say that your Hb% is quite low and it is also difficult to have a good level but you must try to get near to 11 gm% by taking hematinics, folate, Vit b12 and multivitamins/minerals and report back to me after 1 month. This could be early symptoms of thyroiditis also!
Also, please check your blood pressure, cardiac profile by ECG, Echocardiography and if all are normal then think of some auto-immune disease and go for ANA/anti-TPO tests.
Wishing you good health,
Sorry, when you mentioned the auto immune disease I thought MAYBE IM NOT CRAZY AFTER ALL!!! Hopefully I am not tooo jumbled
You are correct!
Hi! I agree with you;
In fact, auto-immune diseases are very common and much more commoner than we think! They are mostly silent and not detected until tested properly. You are correct and please see an internist for a detailed physical examination and some specific tests to rule out rheumatoid arthritis and iron overload...
Don't lose hope; there are treatments available for such conditions.
