SICKLE CELL DISEASE(SCD)
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a group of inherited blood disorders. It results in an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin found in red blood cells. This leads to a rigid, sickle-like shape under certain circumstances. Sickle cell disease typically manifests around 5 to 6 months of age. The average life expectancy in the developed world is 40 to 60 years.
 
MADHYA PRADESH
Madhya Pradesh has the highest load with an estimated number of 9,61,492 sickle heterozygotes and 67,861 sickle homozygotes. Also, 27 of the 45 districts in Madhya Pradesh fall under the sickle cell belt and the prevalence of HbS varies from 10 to 33 per cent.
