Treatments for thalassemia depend on the type and severity of the disorder. People who are carriers or who have alpha or beta thalassemia trait have mild or no symptoms. They’ll likely need little or no treatment.
Doctors use three standard treatments for moderate and severe forms of thalassemia.
These treatments include :
Blood Transfusions.
Iron Chelation (KE-LAY-SHUN) Therapy.
Folic Acid Supplements.
