Thalassemia is an inherited disorder of the blood. It reduces the amount of hemoglobin (red blood cell) your body can make, thus resulting in the inability of the red blood cells to carry a sufficient supply of oxygen to where ever it is needed in the body. This will cause anemia and if not treated, the heart and other organs in the body will slowly fail due to the lack of oxygen and the patients will usually die within 1 to 18 years old. The work of the APPG involves discussing topics of importance to the sickle cell and thalassaemia community and reporting back to Parliament, with the ultimate aim of reducing health inequalities faced by sickle cell and thalassaemia sufferers. Depending on the type and severity of the thalassemia, a physical examination might also help in the diagnosis. For example, a severely enlarged spleen might suggest to your doctor that you have hemoglobin H disease.
