Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 HbSC: Sickle Cell Disease Turkey, Greece, & Italy ~ A genetic problem causes SCA. A person that has the disease has one sickle cell from each parent. ~ Symptoms include shortness of breath,dizziness, headaches, and coldness in the hands and feet. Sickle Cell Disease occurs among 1in every 500 African American births. ~ 2 Types: Thalassemia Major and ThalassemiaIntermedia. Both vary on extremity of symptoms. ~ A blood test can be done to determine whetheror not someone has the trait or anemia. Sickle Cell disease occurs in about 1 inevery 36,000 Hispanic-American births. Sickle cell trait occurs in about 1 in every 12 African Americans. SCD is a group of inherited blood cell disorders. The blood cells are hard and sticky and are inthe shape of a crescent. India and Saudi Arabia South & Central America, and the Carribbean Islands 90,000-10,000 people in the U.S. whoare affected Sickle Cell Anemia (HbSS): Countries affected worldwide: ~ Several States test newborn babies as part of their newborn screening programs. ~Symptoms for Thalassemia Major occur in the first two years of life. Some include yellowing of the skin and jaundice, slow growth, and delayed puberty. ~ Blood disorder that reduces the production of hemoglobin. Beta Thalassemia: ~ Sickle cells get stuck inside blood vessels,which cause organ and tissue pain. ~ Symptoms of Thalassemia are mild to moderate anemia, slow growth, and bone abnormalities. The symptoms are not as severe and do not occur until later in life or early childhood. ~ Individuals who have this trait inherit a sicklecell gene from one parent ("S") and an abnormal hemoglobin gene, which is called "C". ~ Those who have the disease have hemoglobin molecules insteadof beta-globin molecules. ~ HbSC is a more common form of SickleCell Disease Hemoglobin C Disease (HbSC): ~ usually a more mild form of Sickle Cell Disease HbSD, HbSE, HbSO: ~ The severity of the symptoms vary ~ People who have these forms of diseases have one gene from an unusual type of hemoglobin. ~ more of the rare forms of Sickle Cell Disease ~ The abnormal types of hemoglobinare "D", "E", and "O".
