- Thalassemia Disease: The disease is an inherited blood disorder that is passed from parents to children. When a person gets infected with the disease, his or her body loses the ability to produce haemoglobin. Eventually the red blood cells count reduces. Red Blood Cells are the carriers of oxygen. Thalassemia can cause anemia, leaving the person fatigued. The disease is most common in South Asian, African and Mediterranean countries.
