Can you give blood with thal minor?
« on: June 05, 2019, 06:08:05 PM »
Hi everyone, just wondering if it is ok to give blood if you have the beta thal trait? And if so, would there be any complications/should it be avoided?

Thanks!

It depends where you are and what your Hb level is. For example, the US Red Cross has a cutoff of 12.5 Hb. If over that, blood can be given.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.
