Q. Will beta thalassemia minor affect the relationship DNA test?



Hi doctor,

I am beta thalassemia minor. If I go for a relationship DNA test with my son, will the DNA report be false due to this?





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

Based on your query, my opinion is as follows:

  • No, relationship DNA test will not be affected.
  • It is autosomal related. He may or may not be a carrier. DNA test will look at multiple patterns.
  • If you want, you can go for DNA test. Being affected from thalassemia is not going to affect the test.
