  • SICKLE CELL DISEASE

Meaning:

A group of disorders that cause red blood cells to become misshapen and break down. With sickle cell disease, an inherited group of disorders, red blood cells contort into a sickle shape. The cells die early, leaving a shortage of healthy red blood cells (sickle cell anemia) and can block blood flow causing pain (sickle cell crisis).

Symptoms:

Infections, pain and fatigue are symptoms of sickle cell disease.

People may experience:

  • Pain in the joints
  • Pain can be sudden in the chest
  • Whole body dizziness, fatigue, low oxygen in the body, or malaise
  • Inability to make concentrated or dilute urine or blood in urine
  • The symptoms like abnormal breakdown of red blood cells, inflamed fingers or toes, pallor, shortness of breath, or yellow skin and eyes are common.

Cure for sickle cell disease:

Treatment for sickle cell disease depends on severity. Treatments include medication, blood transfusions and rarely a bone-marrow transplant.
