Sickle cell anemia is an inherited disease that causes your body to produce red blood cells that are sickle in shape. These red blood cells carry little or no oxygen. Since it is the responsibility of the red blood cells to transport oxygen throughout the body and the person with sickle cell disorder has red blood cells that are sickle and has little or no oxygen then there will be health challenges in the body. Health challenges like anemia, because of the low red blood cells.
Crisis, because of low oxygen in these red blood cells and the sickle shape of the cells make it difficult for these cells to pass through the blood vessels. Issues with Low immunity.
