Historically, sickle cell disease was viewed as a pediatric condition with a life expectancy in the United States of just 14 years. Today, as a result of advances in screening and interventions, people with sickle cell disease typically live into adulthood; the average life span in the United States, however, is still 30 years less than the life span of the general population. Today, the majority of patients with SCD are adults.Healthcare professionals discern several categories of blood disorders. Among them, it is possible to notice a sickle-cell disease. Several types of this health condition exist, but the most widespread one is called a sickle-cell anemia. Thus, we can say that SCA is just another form of anemia. The main reason for the problem to exist is the heredity – the patient obtains the disorder from his or her parents.live-chat-managing-and-preventing-sickle-cell-crisis-with-nadiyah-alexander
