Thalassemia is a genetic blood disorder. It is caused when there are very few red blood cells and less haemoglobin than required in the body. This can cause many diseases like anaemia, which will leave you fatigued and making your immunity very weak. The symptoms of this disorder are fatigue, weakness, pale or yellowish skin, facial bone deformities, slow growth, abdominal swelling, dark urine, and poor appetite.
