Description

Our screening test assures you of accurate results that can specify any abnormalities. Once you know your haemoglobinopathy status, your doctor or healthcare specialist will be able to refer you to a haemoglobinopathy specialist to explain the significance of your condition and help you maintain your health in the future.

Haemoglobinopathies is a term often used to describe a group of related, inherited haemoglobin disorders. This includes the thalassemias, where insufficient amounts of the component proteins of haemoglobin are made, resulting in a reduction of the amount of haemoglobin and red blood cells in the body. Red blood cells are vital for the transport of oxygen from the lungs to all tissues in the body. Structurally haemoglobin is a complex consisting of two alpha globins and two beta globins.

It is possible to be a carrier of thalassemia and this is known as having thalassemia trait. Carriers do not tend to suffer from any serious health issues, but it is very important to know if you are a carrier ad there may be a risk of passing on the disease when having children, especially if your partner is a sufferer or carrier of the same condition.
