Sickle cell nephopathy (SCN) begins early in childhood from failure of urinary concentration (hyposthenuria), albuminuria to hyperfiltration, hematuria and progression to falling glomerular filtration to end-stage renal disease and increased mortality. Renal involvement is more severe in homozygous individuals (HbSS) than in compound heterozygous patients (HbSC).Author: Baba P.D. Inusa, Lodi Mariachiara, Palazzi Giovanni, Kenneth Introduction. Hypertransfusion refers to chronic blood transfusion therapy aimed at ameliorating disease complications in various haemopathies particularly the haemoglobinopathies. In sickle cell disease, hypertransfusion is aimed at maintaining patient’s haemoglobin level at 10 to 11 g/dL using haemoglobin AA blood and its resultant dilutional effect on sickle haemoglobin is sustained by Cited by: 8.

Inherited disorders of haemoglobin (Hb), such as thalassaemia and sickle cell disease (SCD) are common and responsible for significant morbidity and mortality on a global scale.

That was how we knew that Sickle Cell Traits have 3 modes of Haemoglobin S (%, %, %) [29] which fact enables us to distinguish the true Sickle Cell Trait (“AS” with S less than 40%) from Sickle Cell beta-plus Thalassaemia Disease (2 abnormal genes) .   Sickle cell disease and thalassaemia major are serious, inherited blood disorders. See e-learning programme for more information. They affect haemoglobin and its oxygen carrying capacity.
