Have you ever wondered if you are a carrier of Thalassemia? Most probably not - yet, research shows that almost 1 in every 20 Malaysian happens to be one, allowing for this potentially fatal genetic blood disorder to continue to exist. The fact that a carrier of Thalassemia has no symptoms and can live a perfectly normal life accentuate this problem. So what can be done?
Dr. Surinder Singh, consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist, joins us to discuss ways to identify and prevent this blood disorder through Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis, tackling the problem before it even has a chance to occur.
