Hi Deana,

Being a thalasemmia patient we have to constantly monitor our iron levels.
How are you checking iron levels, you need to be sure you are doing the right blood tests as ferritin levels alone are not enough for accurate results. There are techniques / medication to remove excess iron from the body like ‘Chelton therapy’ which you can read or ask your haematologist about. Keep us informed on how things go.
