Description

Using the Home Blood Spot Sampling Kit to screen for Beta thalassemia is a quick and easy way to know your status for this condition.  If there is an indication that you require further advice or treatment, you will be able to discuss this with your doctor or healthcare professional.

Beta thalassemia belongs to a group of inherited blood disorders, also known as haemoglobinopathies.  With this type of blood disorder, the body has fewer healthy red blood cells, which means that the body has less haemoglobin.  This affects the amount of oxygen that can be transported around the body.  Beta thalassemia means that the body specifically is not producing enough, or any, beta protein.

Beta thalassemia trait means that a person is just a carrier of the disease and does not normally experience any symptoms, other than occasional mild anemia. However, it is important to know if a person is a carrier to help understand how this may affect their children.

Beta thalassemia requires regular monitoring and treatment to prevent serious organ damage and to prevent a life-threatening situation.  Even those that may only have beta thalassemia trait should be aware of their carrier status to be aware of the possibility of passing on a more serious form of the condition to their children.
