    Is It Possible For Both Parents That Are AS To Have 3 Children That Are Free From Sickle Cell?

    Sickle Cell

    Research has it that If both parents have sickle cell trait (HbAS) there is a one in four (25%) chance that any given child could be born with sickle cell anaemia. There is also a one in four chance that any given child could be completely unaffected.

    The disease is an inherited blood disorder. Children can inherit only one cell gene from a parent. They have sickle cell traits. They usually do not develop symptoms of sickle cell disease.

    To inherit two sickle cell genes, one from each parent. They have cell disease and will need lifelong medical care. You can find out if you carry the sickle cell gene with a simple blood test.

    If you do have sickle cell trait, it doesn’t mean your kids will have sickle cell disease. Your child would have to inherit two sickle cell genes to have sickle cell disease. So if your child’s father does not have the sickle cell gene, your child can’t get sickle cell disease. But if your child’s father has the sickle cell gene, your child can get sickle cell disease.

    The question that is begging for an answer is, is it possible for both parents who are AS to have three children that are free from sickle cell disease? Let’s talk by sharing your opinion on this.

      From the diagram above, it is possible for the three children to be free from sickle cell disease. But it is a slim probability.

      Couples should not take a bigger risk that will end in premium tears. When a couple knows their genotype that will produce a sickle child, they should not marry each other.
