Hi there I understand your concern...complete blood count (CBC), hemoglobin electrophoresis is the first diagnostic test. For this Fractions of hemoglobin A, A2, F, H, E, and other variants are measured. Hemoglobin analysis by hemoglobin electrophoresis or high performance liquid chromatography is used for confirmation...Consult nearest hematologist they will do the needful.
