Thalassemia, anyone have it or understand it?
I am trying anything to find a reason for my anemia. I have had bloodwork for Von Willenbrands which was normal. I am asking for bloodwork for Thalassemia since I am of Italian heritage, yet I don't look like it. I have mentioned this to all my doctors and they do not think it could be thalassemia, but just for my curiosity I would like the test done. I have had all the GI tests done and they were all normal. I would like to know if anyone has thalassemia and what symptoms lead to that diagnosis. I just want answers as we all do. Thank you.
