What is Thalassemia Genetic Counselling?

Thalassemia genetic counselling is a process that involves a comprehensive assessment of an individual’s medical and family history, as well as any genetic testing that may have been performed. The goal of thalassemia genetic counselling is to provide individuals and families with a clear understanding of the genetic basis of thalassemia and the available treatment options.

Thalassemia genetic counselling may also involve discussion of issues related to genetic testing, including the potential benefits and limitations of testing, the implications of test results for the individual and their family, and the emotional and psychological impacts of genetic testing.
