I really need to know more about this disease. Like for instance, treatments and helpful hints on bringing my energy level back up. I understand how i got it but i do not know much else about it.I am 25 years old. My daughter was also diagnosed with it and she is 5 now. I know she recieved it from me and I recieved it from my father. But i was just diagnosed with it last year. All my life they kept telling me anemia until one day my doctor ran a test. Come to find out it was in fact thalassemia minor B. My husband does not have it. We have not checked my son for it yet. He is 3. Will he most likely have it being my daughter has it? What kinds of treatments are there or slutions. My doctor gave me iron simply because of low iron. But i read this is not a treatment. Please help me understand.
