Teens Blood Disorders
Maybe your day's so packed with things to do that you hardly have time to grab breakfast, let alone make sure you're eating right the rest of the day. Perhaps you're staying up late to get your homework finished and missing out on the sleep you need. The fact is, lots of teens are tired. And with all the demands of school and other activities, it's easy to understand why. For some people, though, there may be another explanation for why they feel so exhausted: anemia. What Is Anemia?
To understand anemia, it helps to start with breathing. The oxygen we inhale doesn't just stop in our lungs. It's needed throughout our bodies to nourish the brain and all the other organs and tissues that allow us to function. Oxygen travels to these organs through the bloodstream - specifically in the red blood cells. Red blood cells, which are manufactured in the body's bone marrow , act like boats, ferrying oxygen throughout the rivers of the bloodstream. Red blood cells contain hemoglobin (pronounced: hee- muh-glow-bun), a protein that holds onto oxygen. To make enough hemoglobin, the body needs to have plenty of iron. We get this iron, along with the other nutrients necessary to make red blood cells, from food.

Parents Medical Problems
Sickle cell disease is an inherited disorder of the red blood cells characterized by abnormally shaped red cells. This abnormality can result in painful episodes, serious infections, chronic anemia, and damage to body organs. These effects can, however, vary from person to person depending on the type of sickle cell disease the person has. Some individuals are relatively healthy and others are hospitalized frequently. But thanks to advancements in early diagnosis and treatment, most children born with this disorder grow up to live relatively healthy and productive lives. A Closer Look at Sickle Cell Disease
The different forms of sickle cell disease are determined by the genes that are inherited from the person's parents. An individual has the disease if he or she inherits a sickle cell gene from each parent ( hemoglobin SS disease , also called sickle cell anemia He or she can also inherit a sickle cell gene from one parent and a different kind of abnormal gene from the other and end up with a different form of sickle cell disease, such as hemoglobin SC disease and hemoglobin S-thalassemia If an individual inherits only one sickle cell gene and a normal gene from the other parent, then he or she will have the sickle cell trait, but not the disease. A blood

Teens Blood Disorders
Sickle cell anemia is a hereditary disorder that mostly affects people of African ancestry, but also occurs in other ethnic groups, including people who are of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern descent. More than 70,000 Americans have sickle cell anemia. And about 2 million Americans - and one in 12 African Americans - have sickle cell trait (this means they carry one gene for the disease, but do not have the disease itself). Sickle cell anemia occurs when a person inherits two abnormal genes (one from each parent) that cause their red blood cells to change shape. Instead of being flexible and round, these cells are more rigid and curved in the shape of the farm tool known as a sickle - that's where the disease gets its name. The shape is similar to a crescent moon. What Is Sickle Cell Anemia?
Sickle cell anemia is a blood disorder that affects hemoglobin (pronounced: hee -muh-glow-bin), a protein found in red blood cells that helps carry oxygen throughout the body. Red blood cells with normal hemoglobin ( HbA ) move easily through the bloodstream, delivering oxygen to all of the cells of the body. Normal red blood cells are shaped like doughnuts with the centers partially scooped out and are soft and flexible.

    What is anemia? Anemia is having less than the normal number of red blood cells or less hemoglobin than normal in the blood. How is anemia detected? Anemia is usually detected or at least confirmed by a complete blood cell (CBC) count. What is a complete blood cell (CBC) count? In a CBC test, the different types of cells in the blood are counted and examined. Today, much of this work is often automated and done by machine. Six tests make up a CBC:
    • Red blood cell (RBC) count
    • Hematocrit
    • Hemoglobin
    • White blood cell (WBC) count
    • Differential blood count (the "diff")
    • Platelet count
    Only the first three of these tests: the red blood cell (RBC) count, the hematocrit, and the hemoglobin, are relevant to the diagnosis of anemia.
