I'd be curious to know your blood type, I suspect A.
Thallassemis- hemolytic anemia characterized by microcytic, and short- lived red blood cells caused by deficient hemoglobin synthesis. People of Mediterranean origin are often more effected than others.
Thalassessemia minor is characterized only by a mild anemia and minimal red blood cell changes.( thalassessemia major is more severe)
I don't know any one with this. What I do know is that this diet has done amazing things for people. Removing offending foods may make a world of difference to your red blood cells, spleen, liver and kidneys. Give it a try, but make sure you are including all the food groups as per the book. The first person I would try it on is myself and see if you have success then move to the rest of your family. Also I would probably keep the iron rich foods low till I saw a blood test result. Let us know how you do!! Andrea A,NY,36
