Suggest Treatment For Beta Thalessamia Minor Carrier Trait During Pregnancy
Regular antenatal check up is needed.
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I have seen the attached reports. Your wife is a heterozygous carrier and you are non carrier. So the child will be a normal one or a heterozygous carrier like mother.
Right now all the reports are normal- the growth of baby is normal. The hemoglobin level is 10- just adequate for normal growth of the baby. There is no need to worry. The medication she is taking is correct and she needs to go for a regular ante natal check up.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

The doctors in Dubai said nothing to worry about and sent us back but we are worried.
She is already on iron supplements.
Thanks for writing again.
No need to worry. The hemoglobin is not likely to drop as you are taking iron supplements. She can have a normal delivery if everything goes well. Right now no complications are expected. Just wait and let her follow the doctor's advice strictly.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
One last question for your advice.
Can i give her 1000 mcg Vitamin B12 per day as the daily levels seems to be 7.5mcg per day
Her Vitamin B12 is at 209 pg/mL.
One more question Maam. How frequently i should get her haemoglobin and other blood parameters tested ? Is it once a week or once in 2 weeks.
