Thalassemia: Know Your Red Blood Cells

Thalassaemia is an inherited blood disorder affecting hemoglobin, the oxygen carrier in red blood cells.

What it does

It disrupts hemoglobin production, reducing healthy red blood cells. This reduces oxygen delivery throughout the body, causing fatigue, weakness, and pale skin.

Types of Thalassemia

Alpha Thalassemia: Severity depends on missing genes. Beta Thalassemia: Can be mild (trait) or severe (major, requiring regular blood transfusions).

Managing Thalassemia

Thalassemia can be managed through Blood Transfusions, Iron Chelation Therapy, and Bone Marrow Transplants.

The Race for a Cure

Researchers are actively exploring gene therapy as a potential cure for Thalassemia. Your support helps continue this fight!
