Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the most common inherited blood means it’s passed down through families. You’re born with SCD. It is not something you catch or develop later in life.

    In sickle cell disease, red blood cells make an abnormal form of beta-globin. This can cause red blood cells to become sickle-shaped, in the form of a crescent.
