Sickle cell anaemia is an inherited disease that affects red blood cells and changes their shape to sickle-like. These cells attach to each other, causing adhesion of the small vessel wall and can’t pass to the cells and transport oxygen to them, which causes the symptoms of the disease. These cells are weak, fragile, and rapidly breakable.
The main symptoms of the disease are:
Severe pain attacks, which are eliminated by powerful analgesics (morphine). Over time, circulatory disorders occur due to continuous blood clotting and changes in the bone marrow, resulting in damage of skeletal, joint, and vital organ functions (the liver, the pancreas, the kidneys, the spleen), and as a result - early disability and death.
The main problem of this disease is the absence of effective conventional treatments because the main cause of the disease is a genetic defect in haemoglobin - the replacement of glutamine to the essential amino acid - which leads to a complex series of physical and chemical changes in haemoglobin and red blood cells.
Treatment of sickle cell anaemia in our medical center
As it was mentioned above, the disease is inherited. This suggests that traditional medicine doesn’t solve the problem. Today fetal stem cells are the only effective treatment for sickle cell anaemia, which allows the symptoms to be alleviated significantly and reduce addiction.
The treatment program begins with a complete examination and includes the administration of special stem cells.
The duration of the sickle cell anaemia treatment program in our medical center is 3 days.
Note: We recommend you to come for treatment in war months - from April to October because the cold causes increased pain attacks.
