Hello anayasahi,

Welcome to the site.

Treatment of Thalassemia

Treatment for thalassemia major often involves regular blood transfusions and folate supplements.

If you receive blood transfusions, you should not take iron supplements. Doing so can cause a high amount of iron to build up in the body, which can be harmful.

Persons who receive significant numbers of blood transfusions need a treatment called chelation therapy to remove excess iron from the body.

A bone marrow transplant may help treat the disease in some patients, especially children.
