The child is beta+ sickle cell. It's difficult to predict the future, but in most cases, it means transfusions will not be regularly required, but precautions against sickling crisis should be taken, such as avoiding high altitudes.

The biggest danger is the sickling crisis, when the sickle shaped cells cause blood vessels to be blocked temporarily. I suggest that daily vitamin E be given to the child to help prevent this.

Mubeen,

Beta thalassemia is dangerous when two beta thal genes are present.

I would not suggest stopping hydroxyurea unless your doctor says to stop.
