Details for Sickle Cell Anaemia
PropertyValue
NameSickle Cell Anaemia
DescriptionThere are three common types of sickle cell disease: • Sickle cell anaemia or haemoglobin SS - this is the most common. • Haemoglobin SC, where the genes for sickle cell and thalassemia are both inherited - this is generally milder than sickle cell anaemia. • Sickle-beta thalassemia, where there is both a severe and mild form of the disease. Most people who 'carry' the disease do not generally experience any problems, often remaining healthy and leading normal lives. For those who develop the condition, it is both serious and painful. A child born to parents who carry or have the disease, will have a one in four chance of inheriting and developing the condition.
