Sickle Cell

Sickle cell disease is a group of inherited red blood cells disorders. People that suffer with sickle cell disease have an abnormal protein in their red blood cells. In the United States, most people who have sickle cell disease are of African ancestry, but the condition is also common in people with a Hispanic and Mediterranean background. Because the disease runs in families, couples planning to have children can have genetic testing.
