Life Choices

Managing Thalassemia isn't just about your medical treatment. It can be important to think about how your decisions impact on your health. You can read more on the tabs above for specific information about the impact of your Thalassemia on your education or work, what you eat and relationships and pregnancy. It is also important to think about other areas including exercise with having an increased risk of osteoporosis and also smoking as this can impact the amount of oxygen in your blood.

This information does not replace or alter any advice that you may have received from your specialist team. Please talk to your specialist nurse, consultant or anyone else in the team about questions or worries you may have. There is more information on all these areas on both the NHS and Thalassemia Society websites.
