Thalassemia Is A Blood Disorder That Affects 5% of Singapore's Population; A GP Explains How To Live With This Condition

To many of us, thalassemia might sound like some strange being from one of the Avengers movies. Some of us, however, may be all too familiar with this condition…

Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder, which is caused by an abnormal gene. There are two different types:

  • Thalassemia minor (thalassemia trait) 
  • Thalassemia major 

Charlotte, a 20-year-old female, was recently diagnosed with thalassemia minor. She took to DxD's platform in search of medical advice about her condition.

Dr Seah Heap Yong, a general practitioner, gave her some advice. Here's what he had to share.

Hi Thanu There is always a reason for your body to develop a fever. The important thing is to find out what is the cause of the fever and treat the underlying cause, rather than just the fever itself. A very high fever on its own can also cause other problems like brain damage...
