  • The Sickle Cell Disease

    Sickle Cell Disease is a blood disorder that’s inherited and affects almost 100,00 folks in the United States . Red blood cells contain hemoglobin which is a protein that carries oxygen in the blood . Normal red blood cells are flexible and round which allows body . The sickle cell disease causes red blood cells to form a cresent shaped red blood cells to break away easily causing anemia . Instead of the normal 120 days the sickle red blood cells live 10 -20 days . The damaged sickle red blood cells stick to the walls of blood vessels ,clump together and blocks blood flow . They can cause permanent damage to the bones ,kidneys ,lungs , liver ,heart…

  • Essay On Sickle Cell Disease

    Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited autosomal recessive disorder that is diagnosed in both children and adults. Most children in the United States are diagnosed very early in age, because the signs and symptoms of Sickle Cell Disease are usually going to begin in early childhood ( Sickle Cell Disease is a disorder in which the body produces sickle, or “crescent” shaped, blood cells instead of disc-shaped cells. These crescent shaped blood cells are caused by an abnormal sickle shaped…

  • Essay On Sickle Cell

    Research for Sickle Cell Disease started in 1910.When a patient from the West Indies had anemia characterized by oddly shaped red blood cells. A Chicago physician, James B. Herrick identified the red blood cells as sickled shaped. It was discovered that the sickling of the cells was associated with the low oxygen in 1927 by Hahn and Gillespie. A medical student at John Hopkins, Sherman, noticed the birefringence of deoxygenated red blood cells, recommended that low oxygen adjusted the hemoglobin…

  • Sickle Cell Essay

    At one time, Sickle Cell was seen as a great mutation. Soon, that great mutation became deadly. Being the first genetic disorder with a molecular basis that was known, Sickle Cell is the most common inherited blood disorder in the United States. Sickle Cell is more than just one disease. There are three types: trait, anemia, and the actual disease. Sickle Cell trait is present when only one gene of the disorder is inherited. In people with the trait, Hemoglobin S is heterozygous. Sickle Cell…

  • Sickle Cell Anemia Essay

    Sickle Cell Disease (Anemia) is an autosomal recessive disease caused by a mutation in hemoglobin. Rather than the common disc shape of red blood cells, this disease causes the cells to form in a crescent shape, leaving them fragile and apt to break or clot in small blood vessels, thereby slowing or blocking blood flow. This prevents oxygen from circulating the body properly. As with all autosomal recessive genes, both parents must be carriers in order for their offspring to get the disease. …

  • Sickle Cellular Adaptation

    considered the main hypotheses for the sickle gene cell. However, those hypotheses limit in explaining the entirety for the frequency of the HbS allele in human populations around the globe. The complex relationship between the HbS allele frequencies and the level of malaria prevalence support the malaria hypothesis at a global scale and further demonstrate why adaptation or natural selection alone cannot be the factor in explaining allele frequencies. According to Piel et. al. (2010), HbS,…

    The average life expectancy for females with sickle cell anemia is 48 years. Since both my client’s parents has the sickle cell gene, 25 percent of infants with both parents having the gene will inherit it. Statistics showed that the intake of vitamins E and D, folate, calcium, and fiber as %DRI was lower for children of all ages; also, they are the nutrients of most concern. The Intake of vitamin C, protein, vitamin B-12, riboflavin, and magnesium becomes lower and lower with age. Infants…
