Millions of people in the world have sickle cell anemia, sometimes called sickle cell disease, including at least 100,000 in the US. A disorder affecting the body’s red blood cells, sickle cell anemia is a genetic disorder in which the body’s red blood cells, which are normally round and pliant, become sticky and sickle or crescent shaped. They cause blockages and slow-downs in smaller blood vessels, and this restricts the amount of blood and oxygen circulating to various parts of the body. Additionally, sickle cells break easily and have a lifespan of about 10-20% of those in people without this condition, so the body is constantly running on a short supply of red blood cells, and those it does have are misshapen and sticky. This causes the entire body to lack the appropriate amount of oxygen, causing severe and constant fatigue.
A SICKLE CELL ANEMIA MEDICAL ID OFFERS DAILY PROTECTION
If you or someone you love has sickle cell anemia, wearing medical ID jewelry is imperative. In the event of an emergency, having your diagnosis available may help EMTs and other first responders treat you more quickly and efficiently. We recommend listing your name, diagnosis(es), any medications, all allergies, and emergency contact numbers.
