Is sickle recessive anemia a sex-linked disease?

Is sickle recessive anemia a sex-linked disease?

If you mean....: Is the beta globin gene transmitted on a sex chromosome (either x or y), the answer is no. The beta globin locus is autosomal, and classical sickle cell disease (hgbss disease) displays autosomal recessive inheritance. Boys and girls are equally likely to inherit the beta-s allele from an affected or carrier parent, and if they inherit a beta-s allele from each parent, they will have disease. ...Read more

Takes time: The disease involve antibodies triggered as a fluke by gluten that attack your intestinal tissues as if it were an invading germ. Stop ingesting gluten & antibodies quit forming & those you have can gradually disappear. You can heal as the intestine restores itself. Be vigilant in reading product labels. Gluten is in many things. Beer, whiskey, soy sauce & many other items contain trace amounts. ...Read more

How do 2 people without sickle-cell anemia to have a child with sickle-cell disease?

How do 2 people without sickle-cell anemia to have a child with sickle-cell disease?

Yes: The defect of sickle cell anemia occurs when 2 sickle cell genes are passed to a newborn. Since each parent passes half their genes at conception & it takes 2 sickle genes to cause disease, one gene comes from each parent. Many parents carry this gene quietly, unknown to them because it doesn't make a single gene carrier sick. ...Read more

My husband and I are both carriers of sickle cell anemia. What are our chances of our children exhibiting this disease?

My husband and I are both carriers of sickle cell anemia. What are our chances of our children exhibiting this disease?

25%: If both of you have sickle cell trait then each of you has one normal beta hemoglobin gene (a) and one with the sickle cell mutation (s). Your children will inherit one beta globin gene from each of you for a total of two. Therefore for each child that you have, there is a 25% chance of sickle cell disease (ss), a 50% chance sickle cell trait (as), and 25% chance of normal hemoglobin (aa). ...Read more

Is it possible to be diagnosed with sickle cell anemia at 43? Even without ever experiencing any symptoms of the disease?

That being said, there is variation in the severity of sickle cell disease, most likely due to a number of other genes that modulate the symptoms. Thus, it probable is quite rare, but there could be that individual with a particular genetic makeup that has minimal disease that goes undiagnosed. ...Read more
