Beta Thalassemia Connected To Kidney Disease
Yes: Beta thalassemia disease is prevented if beta thal carriers do not have children with one another (if they have children together, some children will be normal, some carriers, and some have disease). The other, less desirable way, is to test fetuses during pregnancy and abort the fetuses who have beta thal major. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more

I've beta thalassemia minor and my husband have e trait. Is it necessary to test our baby? Is there any chances to get disease of our baby?
Not likely: Unless your infant is showing signs of anemia, you may do an hemoglobin electrophoresis at any time after several months of life. Fetal hemoglobin (normal) is usually present in decreasing amounts until around 18 months. Once the electrophoresis is done, you will know your baby's hemoglobin type. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do we know which baby will be suffered from hgb e/beta thal disease? Any chances about my 1st baby?Bcoz we are e trait and beta thalassemia couple
It's random: Each time you conceive a child, a random assortment of genes from each parent goes into making up junior's genome. This is basic biology but still often needs to be reviewed. It's good for folks with any thal variant to take enough folate, but you should be taking that iron if and only if you are actually iron deficient or clearly need to supplement. Glad you're learning and proactive. Good luck. ...Read more
No: The normal parent will give his or her normal gene to their baby. That means the baby will have one abnormal and one normal gene, meaning the baby would be a "carrier" of one bad gene and not suffer the actual disease. The only way the baby would end up with 2 abnormal genes is if the gene from the normal parent got altered by a new mutation... Which is unlikely to happen. ...Read more
Epilepsy and e beta thalassemia are related? Is Epilepsy occurred for thalassemia? If someone have both diseases then what will be the effect?
Bit of a stretch but: OK....I can understand why your doctor would say that because CKD can in fact cause peripheral neuropathies which is the likely mechanism behind the tinnitus. But it's certainly not anywhere close to the most common symptoms. Has your doctor looked at other causes such as medications, infection, and of course the most common cause, hearing loss....Huh? HEARING LOSS! ...Read more
Can a female with Hb H disease marry someone with beta thalassemia trait? What are the possible results in terms of genetics percentages?
Sure: Anybody can marry anybody. Since HgbH disease involves the alpha genes and beta thal minor involves the beta genes, I would not be concerned. However, you might do well to be certain that neither partner carries the other person's trait as well masked by what's already diagnosed. Sit down with a competent clinical geneticist. ...Read more
