Hemoglobin E trait?: Hemoglobin e disease is a condition found mostly in the asian population. Most people with hemoglobin e disease have mild anemia and
occasionally may have a slightly enlarged spleen; but usually they do not have disease symptoms and do not require treatment. Folic acid supplements may be prescribed by your child’s doctor to help his or her body to produce normal red blood cells.
