The detection and proper identification of hemoglobinopathies and thalassemias is an important aspect of the evaluation of patients with anemia, microcytosis and erythrocytosis. Thalassemia is a group of inherited blood disorders that can be passed from parents to their children and affect the amount and type of hemoglobin the body produces. Hemoglobin (Hb or Hgb) is a substance present in all red blood cells (RBCs).
No special preparation is needed for Thalassaemia Screen. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Thalassaemia Screen. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
