Help needed with Blood reports Father/Son
« on: June 07, 2018, 08:02:50 PM »
Hi,

  Our 2 yrs son is anemic and and his doctor thinks he might be thal carrier. We have scheduled detailed blood test for him.
In mean time I had asked my doctor to check for my blood to see if I am a carrier and following are the results
Hemoglobin 14.1
MCV          63.8
MCH          19.8
MCHC         31.0
RDW-CV      19.0

Hb A            95.2%
Hb A2          2.5%
Hb F            2.3%

Regards from Germany

The results are a bit unusual. The MCV and MCH both look like thal minor. The HbA2 is not elevated, as it would be in beta minor and the HbF is elevated as it would be in beta minor, but which would be unusual for alpha minor. Hb is normal. Your son's results may shed some light on yours.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.
