    Hemoglobin H

    Hi all, I have Hemoglobin H which is like Thal intermedia for Beta Thals.... only on the Alpha Strain. My parents were shocked as we knew my dad had Thal minor ( he's chinese) but no one expected my half Croatian mom would also be a carrier.... We figured this all out in the 80...

    I Have Thalassemia Minor.

    I found out when I was around 5 years old. Where I was living, was used to it. Many had it there. Now, where I live now, they don't even know how to check for it. I had to go to a cancer ward, just to be checked out.
