NEW PUBLICATION | Nutrition in Thalassaemia: A Guide for Patients, Families, and Caregivers

We are excited to announce TIF’s latest publication, “Nutrition in Thalassaemia: A Guide for Patients, Families, and Caregivers.” This essential guide has been carefully crafted to serve as a concise reference resource for individuals living with thalassaemia, their families, and their caregivers.

The guide encompasses:

  • An overview of the nutritional needs specific to people with thalassaemia
  • Methods for nutritional assessment
  • Detailed explanations of nutrients particularly important for thalassaemia patients
  • Insights into how diet and nutrition play a crucial role in managing complications associated with thalassaemia

Authored by Dr. Ellen Fung, PhD, RD, CCD, Nutritional Scientist, and Dr. Anne Yardumian, MD, Consultant Haematologist, this publication offers a series of practical recommendations designed to help navigate potential nutritional deficiencies, nutrient toxicities, and other diet-related challenges.

The patient-focused guide complements our 2023 publication for healthcare professionals, “Nutrition in Thalassaemia & Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency: A Guideline for Clinicians.” 

The Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF) remains committed to providing valuable resources that support both children and adults with thalassaemia in effectively managing their condition through informed nutritional choices.
