how old are you?
what is your question about this?
whether it is iron deficiency or beta thal?
Beta thal is pretty constant over your lifetime
It won't change
but I suspect you have iron deficiency on top of it now
is this helpful?
You can't treat the beta thal so just replacing lost iron is the treatment
