Big Brother Naija housemate, Laycon has revealed that he has a milder symptom of the sickle cell anemia disease.
Laycon who has deemed fierce regardless of his physicality recently revealed his blood group to be sickle cell.
According to Laycon, who said, he has hemoglobin that carries symptoms similar to those of Sickle Cell disease, but milder.
According to Laycon: “My blood group is Sickle Cell, I don’t like to tell people my genotype because I feel they will think I’m sick.”
Responding, Dorathy said Laycon’s genotype could be the reason he’s not fat.
“Guess that is why you are thin,” Dorathy said.
For most who don’t know what Sickle cell is, its a group of blood disorders typically inherited from a person’s parents.
The most common type is known as sickle cell anemia. It results in an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein hemoglobin found in red blood cells.
