Thalasemia Minor Iron Defiency

Dear Lorn thank you so much for being out there with such a passion to help others get healthy. I am 51 and have had thalsemia minor and did get tests done at the doctors she told me NOT to take an iron supplement and I would like to know if there is any thing I can take. My son and daughter have the same problem. I was born in Karachi Pakistan and was told that people from Asia have this issue.

Thank you Sue

Hi Sue, Do you have your test results. I would like to know what your hemoglobin and ferritin test results are. I would have to know this info in order to advise you what to do.

Creating links

There are two ways of creating links:
  • [Example]( produces a link like this: Example
  • The fully qualified address, like, will automatically be converted to a link.

Formatting Text

  • You can make your text italic by surrounding it with * characters, *like this.*
  • Bold formatting is produced by surrounding your text with two stars, **like so**.
  • You can even ***use both at the same time***.


  • You can make a bulleted list using stars, like this:

    * First Item
    * Second Item
    * Third Item

  • If you want a numbered list, just write it out like this:
    1. First Item
    2. Second Item
    3. Third Item


You can produce headers for your posts using the '#' symbol.
  • '#Main Heading Example' produces a top level heading.
  • '##Sub Heading Example' produces a sub level heading.
  • '###Small Heading Example' produces a small heading.
