ASVI 2022 Session Seven.

ACUTE AND CHRONIC RENAL FAILURE IN SICKLE CELL DISEASE.

19th March 2022, 7am EST ASVI is back with Session Six of Amplify Sickle Cell Voices Webinar Series Part Three.

In 2022, over 100 years since Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) was discovered in an American Lab, we are still facing health disparities around the world. Most people impacted by this condition are still missing the basic medications to manage their symptoms and complications.

This week we are discussing Acute and Chronic Renal Failure/Renal Medullary Carcinoma in Sickle Cell Disease.

THIS WEEK’S PANELLISTS.

The kidneys in Sickle Cell patients are not spared from the effects of the sickled cells and are affected just like other organs in the body.

The Kidneys are said to be extremely sensitive to sickled red blood cells and people with sickle cell disease are more likely to develop chronic kidney disease because of reduced blood flow to the kidney.

Chronic kidney disease is common in people living with Sickle Cell Disease and shows a wide range of conditions, called sickle cell nephropathy.

An article from NBCI on Renal Failure in Sickle Cell Disease states that “Renal dysfunction in sickle cell disease is not only a chronic comorbidity but also a mortality risk factor.”

The aim of this webinar will be to highlight Chronic Kidney disease in SCD, the signs and symptoms, what treatment options are there and What one can do to understand this complication?

Join us to this share your experience so that others can be aware. ASVI is here to help change the sickle cell narratives.

Amplify Sickle Cell Voices International Inc is created for this reason, to highlight issues affecting the majority of the people impacted by this disease. Lend your voice to this cause, JOIN THE ASVI MOVEMENT.
