It depends on what type. If she is thalassemia minor and you don't have it then it may not cause much trouble. If you both are then it can cause major trouble.

Yes there is 25% possibility that the kid will be thalassemia major. But you can do following test during pregnancy to find out if your baby is at risk for thalassemia, you can have prenatal tests during pregancy to see if he has the condition. Prenatal tests are tests you get during pregnancy to see how you and your baby are doing. 1. Chorionic villus sampling (also called cvs). This test checks tissue from the placenta to see if your baby has a genetic condition. You can get cvs at 10 to 13 weeks of pregnancy. 2. Amniocentesis (also called amnio). This test takes some amniotic fluid from around your baby in the uterus. The test checks for birth defects and genetic conditions in your baby. You can get this test at 15 to 20 weeks of pregnancy.

No That wouldnt cause weakness as your body is adapted to low Hb We need to look for alternate etiology as well 1. Superadded iron deficiency 2. Hypothyroidism.

No. Don't worry. Accuracy of the CVS Test. Chorionic villus sampling is more than 99 percent accurate when it comes to diagnosing chromosomal results, such as Down syndrome. However, there's a sliver of a chance for a false positive—when the test comes back indicating a genetic problem, but in reality, the baby is developing normally.

Hello, hematologist, I have thalassemia major by birth I am consulting you because I want to know that is using filter with /during blood transfusion of 2 bags can help form less iron in body.

Hi, the filtered prbc transfusion contains same amount of iron as without​ filter. Filter are not for reduction of iron. It is used to reduce transfusion associated fever, shivering and to reduce late effect of alloimunisation, a complications which leads to future blood transfusion ineffective. For iron overload, one need to take regular oral medicine (chelation therapy). Hope it clears the confusion.
