Hmmm well maybe it's that our parent's generation (those of us who are 25-30) weren't as informed but now testing is much more common for us.

Hopefully that means it'll be pretty much eradicated in the next generation. I can't imagine that people who have the trait would knowingly reproduce with each other.

HbSS (sickle cell) isn't a part of routine blood work

Hmmm. I wonder why almost every time I've given blood for the doc, they've mentioned it. I assumed it was because the cells actually have a different shape so it would be obvious with any blood draw (the trait...not necessarily the disease itself).

From a quick google it seems that screening for the disease is an automatic part of newborn screening and has been mandated in the US for the last 30 years. Which is great since that means hopefully fewer and fewer people will end up with the disease.

Anyway thanks y'all for indulging my tangent.

I had to fill out a special permission form for them to test me during pregnancy. I'm older than 30 though. I'll ask my ob if they'll test the babies as well out of curiosity.

Oh yeah def. I'm just trying to understand the mechanism, aside from my own experience. It would make sense that people don't know if it's not automatically tested for.

Things that make you go hmmm.

I am so nervous for my son with the trait because I have been reading news stories about kids dying during sporting activities/excercising and they discovered that the deaths were actually related to the sickle cell trait that these kids carried.

Tracy Morgan Crash

Driver Turns Himself In

6/8/2014 6:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0608_ROPER_MUG_TMZ_WM

The guy who crashed an 18 wheeler into Tracy Morgan's limo-bus turned himself in Saturday night after being charged with death by auto ... and he's already back out on the street.

35-year old Kevin Roper bonded out hours after being booked.

As we previously reported, Morgan was riding in a limo bus on the NJ Turnpike on his way home from a gig last night ... when it was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler and overturned.

One person died in the crash -- Jimmy Mack McNair, a comic who was a passenger in Tracy's limo.

Morgan is in critical condition but according to one unconfirmed report he's conscious.

A rep for Walmart says Kevin has been suspended pending the police investigation's outcome.
