: re this message. Im from a family of four and three of use have inherited this from our father. He is part maori ( we are from NEW ZEALAND ) , my mother is part hungarian ?? should have come from her side but didn't. I've been told not to donate blood and to check my husband before having children.
I am French but currently living in China. I had recently a blood examination in the hospital and they diagnostic me as having Mediteranean Disease.
Since they were not able to give me more explanation of the disease I would like to get more information. Does any of you know a website or person to contact in order to get more technical information on it ?
Thanks for your reply.
Also if any of you know how the diagnostic is done. I saw my blood test result showing RSA 56% but I have absolutly no idea on the meaning. If someone can help me ?
