Hello, The best vitamins that you can get and should take are from fresh and healthy diet. I am not much enthusiastic about taking unnecessary pills. However the recommended for Thals. is simply Folic Acid and Vitamin C (if you are regular on Desferal).

Well, if you really want supplements, then make sure you read it's contents and void the ones containing Iron. There is a good one available here in Pakistan called ViDaylin-T (For Teens) in form of pink pills. It has a nice set of vitamins and no Iron. See if it is available in your market.

Take care!

We have a thread discussing vitamin and mineral supplementation in thals at

http://www.thalassemiapatientsandfriends.com/index.php?topic=118.0

The bodies of thals undergo many stresses. It is impossible through diet alone to get the optimal amount of nutrients, such as vitamin E and folic acid. The maximum amout of Vitamin C a thal should take daily is 250 mg. Please also note that calcium should be taken along with magnesium and Vitamin D.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Hi,

Some calcium supplements like shelcal and rocalitrol also have Vitamin D as one of the components. Thalassemics are recommended to have an adequate protein intake. This can be got from the diet itself and do make it a point to include a calcium rich diet (if you dont have liver problems).
