Thanks for writing to us.
Mild tiredness and weakness are commonly seen in growing age in thalassaemia minor. You need to minitor his hemoglobin levels so that any anemia can be corrected early. Giving him iron rich diet like green leafy vegetables will be helpul.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
