In the past, children with Sickle Cell Anemia were told they could live until their teens; they were often diagnosed as having another ailment, and improper treat- ment was prescribed. To- day, even though there is no cure for Sickle Cell Disease, an individual can life a normal life span by just knowing they have Sickle Cell Disease at an early age, visiting the doctor regularly, and by following the precautions to prevent a Crisis form occurring. An individual can go through life without know- ing he is a carrier of Sickle Cell Trait (the carrier state of the disease). The trait is not a disease and there are no health problems related to it. Sickle Cell Trait is a condition where the indivi- dual has inherited one sickle hemoglobin gene and one normal hemoglobin gene for red blood cells. Their red blood cells stay round and soft and don't have the tendency to block the vessels as do the cells of a person with Sickle Cell Anemia. There is a concern, however, for those who have Sickle Cell Trait, they are capable of having a child with Sickle Cell Anemia, the disease. When a child is born to parents who both have Sickle Cell Trait, there is a 50 per cent chance of the child-having Sickle Cell Trait; a 25 per cent chance of having Sickle Cell Anemia; and a 25 per cent chance of being normal. One of every 10 black Americans have Sickle Cell Trait, the carrier state. Sickle Cell Anemia and Sickle Cell Variants affect primarily blacks, but also occurs in persons and those with ancestors from the" Mediterranean Sea coun- tries, Southern and Central America, the Caribbean and Southern India. However, all individuals should take the Sickle Cell Blood Test which is only a prick of the finger for a few drops of blood.
