How does sickle cell trait differ from sickle cell disease?
in sickle cell trait you don't actually have the disease. you
are only able to pass the disease to your kids if you marry a
person with sickle cell or that also has the trait. sickle cell
disease is when you actually have the disease. you can pass it to
your kids if you marry someone with the trait or the disease. if
you marry someone without a trait or disease then your kids will
most likely have the trait.
