What effect does altitude have on a person with sickle cell trait and why ?

What effect does altitude have on a person with sickle cell trait and why ?

Sickle in low oxygen: A person with sickle cell trait only, is ok at sea level, but at high altitudes can get sickling in his red blood cells due to the lower concentration of oxygen at high altitudes. The problem of sickled cells clogging off the spleen is rare, but has happened to some people exercising above 10, 000 feet. Good hydration and avoiding over-exertion might decrease the chances of problems starting. ...Read more

I'm anemic, with mild thrombocytosis and rouleaux formation . Is this dangerous ? My blood test also came with suspicion with thalesemian blood trait

I'm anemic, with mild thrombocytosis and rouleaux formation . Is this dangerous ? My blood test also came with suspicion with thalesemian  blood trait

FInd cause: Your physician owes a duty to you to answer these questions. Are you iron deficient? If so, is it from your diet (vegetarian?) or are you losing blood? The thrombocytosis suggests it. Is the rouleaux real or a lab overread? (the latter is common.) do you in fact have thalassemia minor? A look at the smear and indices should give a presumptive answer. Iron deficiency warns of possible latent bad dz. ...Read more

I just took a sickle cell screen and result was negative. Does that mean i'm not a sickle cell carrier-aa genotype?

I just took a sickle cell screen and result was negative. Does that mean i'm not a sickle cell carrier-aa genotype?

Means no Hgb S: This test is specifically looking for HGB s. It will detect sickle trait (hgb as) or sickle cell disease (hgb ss). If the test is negative it means there is no sickle hemoglobin present, but it does not mean aa. There are many abnormal hemoglobins that are not aa, but would also test negative on a sickle screen. ...Read more

Was tested for sickle cell and the trait. I do not have either one. But I have high hemoglobin s & low a. What other than sickle cell can cause this?

Was tested for sickle cell and the trait. I do not have either one. But I have high hemoglobin s & low a. What other than sickle cell can cause this?

Sickle beta thal: If you have high HGB s and low HGB a, then you have sickle beta-plus thalassemia ( if you have HGB a1), or sickle beta-zero thalassemia. ( if you have HGB a2 not HGB a1). These are both forms of sickle cell disease not trait. Beta zero is just as severe as homozygous sickle cell anemia (hgb ss); beta plus is milder in terms of symptoms. ...Read more

How long after birth does a child who inherited thalassemia major show symptoms?

How long after birth does a child who inherited thalassemia major show symptoms?

6-8 months for beta: Alpha thalassemia major is generally fatal before birth, with just rare cases born alive. Beta thalassemia major babies look normal at birth because fetal hemoglobin doesn't need beta globulin. As fetal hemoglobin goes away and adult hemoglobin starts being made, the baby will feel the effects of his lack of beta globulin. Symptoms start after the first 6-8 months of life. ...Read more

If a person has a little higher than normal hgb f result, but no symptoms, does that confirm thalassemia b minor? No sickle cell in the family.

If a person has a little higher than normal hgb f result, but no symptoms, does that confirm thalassemia b minor?  No sickle cell in the family.

No. : Beta thalassemia would be suggested by an elevated HGB a2. There are many different genetic abnormalities that cause thalassemia. Some may increase HGB f, though this is not the norm. Also, thalassemia causes small red blood cells and an related red blood cell count with variable degrees of anemia due to low hemoglobin. ...Read more
