Thalassemia minor

Dear Dr. Amy.

I am 31 yrs old, and have the condition thalassaemia minor. My husband is negative. Do I need to take any other precautions when I'm pregnant?

Regards,
Annette

Dear Annette,

If your husband is documented by blood test to be thalassemia negative, you do not need to worry about the baby getting thalassemia major. Even so, you should talk this over with your doctor.

Sincerely,
Amy
