Hi Joyce,

I cannot recommend taking any drug without consulting a doctor, so I cannot recommend hydroxyurea, except under a doctor's supervision. However, resveratrol is a safe, natural supplement and can be taken without a doctor's approval.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Hi andy,
I want to ask for the specific dosage and vitamin/supplement needed for my 7months thallasemia beta major. At the moment he is on folic acid and multivitamin (Appetton). I’ve visited the puritan site and found out too many vitamins/ supplement there. Please specify the dosage should he be taken at his age. For instance: resveratrol 1000IU/500mg/etc. so do the vitamin E and D, and the IP6  so that I knew the right supplement and dosage for him. And also, some of the supplement is in capsul or softgel form, how can I measure the dosage ?

Im also planning to give his older brother some supplement to help inducing or at least sustain his HbF.(he was never been transfused so far)  Please state the right supplement/vitamins together with the dosage should be taken. He is only 15moths.
Thanx!

Joyce,

I am planning to do a post on what I would give a thal child as far as supplements are concerned. Right now, I would say 500-1000 mcg (.5-1 mg) folic acid daily. !00 IU natural vitamin E daily for the older and every other day for the younger. IP6 capsules can be opened and mixed with liquid (no milk or protein products) or applesauce and used that way. One capsule daily for both kids is perfectly safe. This link shows resveratrol capsules. It may be possible to cut them open to mix the contents with food and taken this way. One capsule every other day for the younger and one every day for the older.  http://www.puritan.com/resveratrol-053/resveratrol-250-mg-027980?NewPage=1

Vitamin D should be used if they do not get regular access to the sun. At this age, 400 IU daily would be enough.
