Description

Once you know your sickle cell status from doing the Blood Spot Screening Test for Sickle cell disease, your healthcare professional can refer you to a specialist haemoglobinopathy counsellor to further explain the significance of your condition.  This test also informs you of your status for Haemoglobin SC disease and S beta thalassemia, two related conditions that also require medical treatment.

Sickle cell disease or sickle cell trait is the name given to a group of related conditions that affect the quality of haemoglobin and the capacity of red blood cells to carry oxygen around the body.

Sickle cell disease can cause problems such as:

  • Sickle cell anaemia
  • Splenic sequestration
  • Aplastic crisis

It is possible for a person to be a carrier of the benign form of the disease, and not exhibit any symptoms or otherwise suffer from this condition. If there is a chance that you may be affected by sickle cell disease yourself, or you think you may be a carrier of the disease that could affect any children you may have, it is vital to know your sickle cell status.

All orders placed before 3pm for the Home Blood Spot Kit will be dispatched on the same day or on the next working day. Your personalised kit will be sent to you by Royal Mail 1st class postal service in a plain cardboard envelope to maintain your privacy at all times.
