Hi,

We have a member whose daughter went through an unrelated BMT,and it was successful,but i have never heard about a mismatched BMT or CBT,and considering that transplant is a very risky process in itself,i don't think a mismatched transplant is a good idea unless you are fighting for your life,But i am not a doctor,i think you should discuss this topic with a transplant expert.

Zaini.

I completely agree with Zaini here...
There are many issues to be considered when you think of transplant of any kind as a treatment option...
Please discuss all the issues with your doctor.
All the best!
Madhavi
Love and luck to all...

Gall bladder stones in thal result from the high levels of bilirubin due to hemolysis. Bilirubin condenses in the bladder forming these stones.

Taking magnesium may help in limiting these stones as magnesium help in increasing the life time of red blood cells and therefore can help in decreasing levels of bilirubin

And yes, you will find gallstones in alpha and beta thal, and in almost any condition where hemolysis takes place.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.
