Is it possible to pass on a sickle cell disease to your child?

Yes. As sickle cell disease is an inherited disease, that is the only way you can pass it on to your children. However, you need both parents to have the gene for sickle cell and both to give that gene to their child, otherwise if one parent gives the gene and one doesn't, the child will be a carrier and can pass that gene on to his/her offspring.
Deppends on partner. Ss disease occurs in kids who get the gene from their parents. If one has ss disease, that is the only gene they can pass, but it requires a second s from the other parent to become real ss disease in the baby. The carrier state (only one gene but no disease) can be passed to kids by any carrier or affected parent as long as they get a normal gene from the other parent.

Can you pass on a sickle cell disease to your child?

Depends on partner. Sickle cell disease requires that the s gene be passed to a baby during conception from both parents. In theory, someone with sickle cell disease could only pass one gene, so if the partner had normal hemaglobin genes, the baby would have trait, not ss. If the partner had trait, both trait or ss is possible. If both parents have sickle cell ss disease, all their babies would have sickle cell. Read more...
Yes. Sickle cell disease is a hereditary disease. If the mother and father pass on only one copy of the affected gene then it is sickle cell trait. However, if two abnormal copies of the gene are passed on--one from mother and one from father than the child will have sickle cell disease. Read more...
