What Is Thalassemia

Thalassemia is an inherited characteristic of the blood. It reduces the amount of hemoglobin in a human body, leading to anemia. Deficiency or a lesser count of red blood cells, or too little hemoglobin in blood, is ‘Anemia’ – which simply means a shortage of blood. If the anemia is mild, it does no harm but if it is severe, the person becomes ill, as the tissues do not have sufficient oxygen.
