In brief: Thalassemia

This is a genetic hemolytic blood disorders transmitted to you from your parents in your genes & instead of having the normal Hgb A, it becomes abnormal Hgb.
there are different types of thalassemia. If both parents are carriers or have the disease then the offspring might get the disease. I hope this helps. Good luck.
