    Today I was told I'm a carrier for thalassemia. Was told not to worry as I won't get sick as I'm just a carrier. But reading the paper work he gave me i could pass it to baby :/ he failed to tell me that part. Blood pressure now through the roof. It's unusual for White British people to have it. Anyone else know anything or anyone with it? X

    Exactly what I said. It's something to do with the red blood cells. Mild cases anaemia serious cases a poorly baby by 4-6 months with life long treatment and blood transfusions needed. Had more bloods took today to confirm it and oh will need testing too x
