You must first find out if he has alpha thal trait or major. They will be able to tell you from his tests. The trait is not serious, but major is. The doctors will explain both as anemic disorders. If major is detected, you both carry the trait for this genetic disease. Thalassemia affects the production of the red blood cell and its capacity to carry oxygen. Please keep us posted and feel free to talk anytime.
