Is Lupus And Thalassemia Reasons For Disability
No: Lupus is not related to Alpha or beta thalassemias. The thalassemias cause "intrinsic" anemia, meaning the anemia is due to a problem inside the red blood cells. Lupus is an autoimmune disease and causes "extrinsic" anemia, meaning lupus is acting on the red blood cells from the outside and causing them to be destroyed.See 1 more doctor answer

My 3yr old daughter has an Alpha thalassemia trait which I found she inherited from me. We're the same blood type could that have been the reason?
Inheritance: Both are inherited characteristics and are simply due to the fact that you are her mother (and were also affected by the father)...they aren't "linked" together. Thalasemias are due to production defects in hemoglobin, the oxygen carrying part of your red blood cells. Blood type (A, B, O) is due to carbohydrate groups on the red cells. Whichever type you have is your blood type.

Uncertain: Whether a medical condition is considered a disability depends on many factors. First is the condition optimally treated and stable? What is the long-term prognosis? What are the essential duties of your job? Are there accommodations or can the job be modified? It's a good idea to discuss all of this with your treating doctor.
