Hello, thalessemia is not the only cause for anemia. If you have any family history of thalessemia then test is important. Most common cause of anemia is iron and folic acid deficiency . Low hemoglobin level denotes anemia which can cause intrauterine growth retardation , pretem labor. So anemia should be corrected . Get report and consult your doctor
