Thalassaemia is a genetic disease that is particularly prevalent in the Middle East and yet often mistaken for anaemia.
Symptoms of Thalassaemia include weakness, fatigue, feeling faint and shortness of breath. The condition is sometimes mistaken for iron deficiency anaemia until blood tests are carried out. While the severe forms of Thalassaemia are life threatening and include low survival rate in infants, the moderate types of Thalassaemia are lifelong conditions which can be managed through the right medical monitoring and support.
