Genetic Blood Disorders
Genetic Blood Disorders are transmitted from parents to their children. Certain blood disorders are caused by the decreased production of Erythrocytes. Red blood cells in our body have short life span and hence must be produced continuously, when the production of these blood cells stops, causes blood disorders.
There are several related abnormal hemoglobin diseases, such as sickle cell anemia and Thalassemia.
Such diseases can be transmitted from parents to children by genes on chromosomes. When both parents have the Sickle cell blood disease, there is a 25% chance that a child will have sickle cell disease. But when one parent is carrying the problem and the other has the disease, the odds increase to 50% that their child will inherit the disease.
