Patient :Hello, I am a carrier of Thalasseamia called ( Anemia Mediterranea) in Italy and it is very common in Sicily where I am from , could you tell me the difference between alpha and beta? I need to understand wich one is mine . A person with this tipe of Thalasseamia tends to have the Iron level low and red blood cells smaller.
My boyfriend might have it too and would like to do a test before having a baby. Could you tell me what is the name of the test and where it is possible to do it in UK?
Thank you very much
