At a point, one may wonder how medical laboratory scientists are able to check for the sickling status of people. Let me break the process down for easy understanding.
From our previous article on sickle cell anemia, it’s quite clear that giving birth to children with this disorder can be easily prevented by having a sickling test pre-marriage or pre-birth.
Most at times we hear of people who are “sicklers”, or have sickle cell disease. Some are our relatives, others are friends. What most people still know is such people suffer a lot of pain and die young in life.
