HB 7.6 after 2 months since trasfusion
« on: December 29, 2011, 09:05:05 AM »
Good news! This is the value after two months.
We are very happy because he take the value so "high" than the past control.
Neverthless he'll trasfusioned tomorow to increase the value at least to 9.
It'll fine find something to improve hb level without trasf to delay next trasf......!
May be work with folic acid dosage....and wheat grass diet insert ?

While folic acid is recommended for alpha thal, wheatgrass cannot do anything to raise the fetal hemoglobin level in alphas, as there is not enough alpha globin produced for the gamma globin to combine with. I do feel that wheatgrass has overall beneficial properties, but it will have no effect on total Hb level.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.
