Yellow Eyes and Sickle Cell

Go the mirror. Look at your eyes. Your sclera (the white part around your pupil) might be white, or it might be varied shades of yellow. This is as a result of Jaundice, and many sickle cell patients have yellow eyes.

Jaundice, also referred to as icterus, is the yellow staining of the skin and sclerae (the whites of the eyes) by abnormally high blood levels of the bile pigment, bilirubin. The yellowing extends to other tissues and body fluids and also may turn the urine dark.

So what happens in sickle cell patients that gives us yellow eyes so much of the time?

It all starts and ends with the red blood cells. When red cells die, they are broken down and destroyed by the body, broken down into base parts and sent for either excretion or recycling. This is a normal process that leaks hemoglobin into the blood. The hemoglobin is converted to bilirubin so that it can be excreted by the body. However, bilirubin is not water soluble and  must be mixed with other substances to make it disposable. The liver modifies bilirubin into bile, and then the bile goes to the intestines, is converted by bacteria to urobilirubin and is then excreted in stool (this is what makes poop brown) or in urine.

The average healthy red cell lives about 90-120 days. The average sickle cell lives about 10-12 days. So with sickle cell patients, the volume of cells being destroyed, repackaged and dumped is exponentially greater than those who do not have sickle cells. As a result, the system becomes overloaded and sometimes, the bilirubin just keeps floating around and around in the blood until your liver is able to convert and excrete it. In light skinned people, there might be a yellow tinge to their skin. For those of a darker persuasion, the yellowing is only noted in the sclerae of the eyes and sometimes in the fingernail beds.

Even those who get regular blood transfusions are prone to jaundice. This is because with blood transfusions, hemolysis (cell death), occurs with the red blood cells that are transfused into you. Anytime red blood cells are manipulated, some of them die. There is much manipulation from getting the blood from the donor, processing it, sterilizing it, storage, transferring and even infusing it into you.  So even if you get transfused with a fresh bag of blood, there are still dead cells floating in there that your body has to convert and excrete. If you get several units, this could lead to a backup of your system.

If your liver is unable to deal with the overload, or you have a damaged liver from medications, vaso-occlusive crises, hepatitis or other conditions, the jaundice might overwhelm your system and lead to other complications like sepsis (infection), cholangitis, biliary cirrhosis, pancreatitis, coagulopathy, renal and liver failure.

[stextbox id=”alert” color=”000000″ bcolor=”000000″ bgcolor=”e7dc54″]One day, I was walking across my college campus and a lovely woman stopped me. “Excuse me, can I ask you a personal question?” When I said yes, she asked me if I had sickle cell disease. I was shocked and surprised, and immediately asked her, “How did you know?” To which, she told me that it was by my yellow eyes. Yellow eyes, which I had always thought were an anomaly served as an external identifier of having sickle cell disease. [/stextbox]

Since then, I look at my eyes every morning. The shades of yellow tell me about what’s going on in my body. I always have some shade of yellow, but the more yellow my eyes, are, the more prone I am to having a full blown crises. Also, when I just get transfused, my eyes are yellow for several weeks until my body processes the blood.

So how do you get rid of yellow eyes and jaundice?

The first line of defense is to drink a lot of water. Hydrating your system will help dilute the bilirubin and get rid of other waste products in your system via the kidneys, leaving the liver with less work to do.

The second important thing is to ensure you have a healthy liver. The liver is one of the most important organs in the body, and with sickle cell patients, we must love and care for our livers. All foods, medications and drugs that you take are broken down by the liver, so before you pop the pill or eat that French fry; think of the work your liver must do to excrete it.

  • Vitamins A and D are excreted by the liver, so take only the recommended daily requirement and no more.
  • Ensure that you take only medications that are not harmful to the liver. Tylenol is broken down by the liver, so use with discretion.
  • At your next doctor appointment, ask for her to draw your AST/ALT (liver enzyme) levels so you know how damaged or awesome your liver is.
  • Stay away from alcohol because this is extremely harmful to your liver (isn’t good for sickle cell anyway).
  • Have a low fat diet. Fatty deposits can attach to your liver, making it inefficient, unable to do its work, and…well fat;) So stick to a healthy diet.
  • Watch your protein intake. The liver is in charge of processing protein, and a diet high in protein can overload the liver. Dairy and vegetarian proteins are easier to process than meat proteins, so choose wisely.
  • Stay away from over-processed foods. The chemicals in processed, canned, pickled, packaged foods have to be broken down by the liver, so try to stick to fresh, whole, organic and natural foods as much as possible.
  • Beware of your herbal remedies. Plants of Senecio, Crotalaria, and Heliotopium families are hepato-toxic (harmful to the liver). Plus chaparral, germander, comfrey, mistletoe, skullcap, margosa oil, mate tea, Gordolobo yerba tea, pennyroyral and Jin Blu Huan.

Foods Recommended to Reduce Jaundice:

For Your Juicing try: Beets, gooseberry, ripe banana, sugar cane juice with half a lemon, lime juice, ginger juice, tomato juice, or barley water

For Your Teas, boil and steep: Bitter leaves like karela, luffa, lemon leaves, radish leaves, or 2 teaspoons of oregano for 10 minutes

For Your Snacks try: Almonds, dates, cardamoms, prunes

  1. I have a confession, I hate that my eyes are yellow and try to disguise it by wearing shades… I hate when ppl ask me why my eyes are yellow, I know it’s petty but I do hope to get over it and be confident with accepting all of me (including the jaundice eyes). Thanks for posting this article tho, very informative and it’s just one more step to take better care of myself and eat right! U Rock 🙂

  2. I’ve noticed that taking fansider clears the eye the next day…its not scientifically proven but its what I use

    @ Ayo: Its not petty…people can be annoying sometimes and if you dont want to answer unneccessary questions then use ur dark glasses. Its not petty

  3. @ayo its okay cause i feel the same way because almost everywhere i go everyone asks me about my eyes and until June when i found out i had SC i just said i didn’t know

  4. @nutty, thats very true. i want to know why antimalarias clear the eyes for a day or two, i have noticed it too

  5. I am so self conscious about my yellow eyes that i just wanna stay indoors and cry. I’ve always had clear eyes, until about a year ago and now my eyes have been consistently yellow :-(. It’s nice to know I’m not alone in feeling this way.

  6. It is very disheartening and sorrowful for me when people keep asking me y my eyes are yellow. i just feel inferior. As for me i dnt come down with the sickle cell crisis,i havent been to the hospital in more than 5yrs,but this yellow eyes is my concern and some times i ask God WHY? but He knows best and i know sickled or not He loves me and i am thankful for the love of my family and friends who knows about my health condition.I have great faith that sooner than later,the permanent cure would be found in no time. Meanwhile let’s keep praying because prayer is the key! God bless you all

  7. Hello,good article. I just wanted to say that due to frequent transfusions throughout the years like I’ve had, you can’t help the process your liver goes through. I’ve received transfusions since the age of two because at that time I was diagnosed it was still considered and orphan disease, and the only confirmative test was the sickledex. Transfusional iron overload is a result of excess transfusions throughout the years, and of course that affects your liver tremendously, because your body has no mechanism for removing iron, and so it has to be chelated by oral or iv medication.

    Now, my eyes have their degrees of yellow, and I’ve been teased, I’ve been asked, and I don’t like it because I’m proud, plain and simple. For the ones of you who posted about being more recently diagnosed, and not had a crisis in five years, do you all realize how truly blessed you are?

    God Bless You all!

  8. Hi everyone, it feels really good to know I’m not the only one that feels this way, I am quite lucky in the sense that I rarely have crises but my problem has always been really deep jaundince, ever since I was a kid people would ask me what was wrong with my eyes, why were my eyes yellow e.t.c and I would feel terrible and cry a lot. It made me shy, insecure and self concious, I loved making friends but avoided it because at the back of my mind I knew those painful questions would follow, but I thank God I have a wonderful family and few friends that care about me,and despite the jaundice/SS, I’m a banker and a have a wonderful husband and a beautiful daughter. I want to let u all know that there is hope, when I look in the mirror my eyes are white, not yellow anymore, thanks to an amazing new drug produced in nigeria called solamin. Basically what it does is reverses and inhibits the sickling of the red blood cells, I have been using it for about a month now and re- took my genotype test today and it came out AA, it sounds too good to be true but it is, There is hope everyone 🙂 from my blackberry

  9. I have a 11 yr old daughter that is dealing with the same issue and I just had to do some research on this. Its like everyday someone at school is asking her aboout her eyes and just yesterday my 15 yr old son asked me the same question and I really couldn’t answer it. Thanks for this article and the other comments that were listed above.This illness is fairly new in this area and most of the things that I know I have had to research and learn for myself so thanks.

  10. Hi ayobola I also saw solamin here but I’ve already started my son on it you will get it from Selma herbal institute in Abuja just check the Internet you will find their contact address, goodluck

  11. @Ayobola can you please tell us more about this Solamin?? and where can it be purchased? and scientific results to back it up?

  12. I am rili happy with thise article.The yellowish of my eye is what pains me in my heart.But some should put more light on this solamin.

  13. Where can i get to to buy this Solamin Herbal Sickle Cell drug or How do i get to Contact them. I need their info. I’m in Minna Niger State. Here is my number 08057985521.

  14. Hi everyone,I don’t know the science behind solamin, but what I know is that 2months ago I got to know about it from ayobola and I decided to give it a try well it works! My son has gained a lot of weight he has energy and his deep jaundice is slowly fading but most of all we took his his genotype test today and it was AA! Please Ayobola kindly let us know how you are doing and thank you for letting us know about solamin! God bless you all!

    • @Ayesha, that is so great! I’m so happy for you and your son that he is doing much better, hopefully this will help him for a long time with sickle cell and jaundice. SCW

    • @Franny, I’m not sure where in NY one gets Solamen but I will post it up and if anyone knows where to buy it maybe they will contact you. Also you should know that it’s found mostly in Nigeria, so if you have any contacts in Nigeria you might be able to get it.

  15. Note that with solamin you have to do a great deal of lifestyle changes,no processed sugar, no junk ,no packaged fruit juice, only natural foods . You will also use honey for sugar , no pasta, indomie etc, you have to get it right! And it worth the effort if a five year old can do it so can you!

  16. I am taking it now, I have been eating pasta, and foolishly ate m&ms today do I start over the medication? What meals did you prepare for your son, everything in america is processed now lol. Thank you for continuing to inform us.

  17. @kemi’ I gave my son lots of rice and vegetable, our local fufu with variety of soup, u can eat bread dat contains salt or make pancakes with honey, beans, when he has to go to school I made fresh orange juice for him i still do, we went off biscuits and chocolate, cakes etc and I’m a cake and desert maker so you can imagine. Snack on fish , chicken, and fruits , nuts. My son’s condition was even more difficult coz he has severe allergy/ asthma but the result is worth the effort, and coz I’m here in Nigeria I get directly from prof. Solomon with a combination of another drug called esomaron, please call the number I posted earlier so that you can get all the information you need , I really want you to get it right. + 2348037022773,here’s my number.

  18. And I don’t think you have to start over the medication but stop eating those things that may void the medication and I lest I forget I was also told to keep to the time of administering it for instance I gave my son solamin 7am and esomaron 7:30am and since it’s 12 hourly I repeat the dose 7 and 7:30 pm in da evening so whatever time you are taking it stick with it of course they were times I was a bit late but not later than 10 to 30 mins it will help if you put a reminder on ur phone, it cost 2000 naira per bottle and they ship from Nigeria to anywhere, you can also call Agnes a nurse in the institute for info and shipment +2348060154902 good luck and I hope to hear from you!

  19. i hav gotten solamin but the questin @aysha is dis y is it not nafdac evaluated.nd wen one’s genotype change dos it change for ever.dos he continue to drink solamin atfer genotype change. Pks tro mor light on it

  20. My eyes are super yellow and I went to the er for pain. My doctor had been notified,my spouse was at my side but unfortunately some prick beat my doc to the punch-taking my blood. My boo tried fussing ,yelling at the nurse for hurting me and causing more pain. I asked for peace bcuz they were just tryna do their jobs. Apparently not my doc comes in fussing at the other docs as well. He call the hospital n what he ordered wasn’t done to his standards. I knew my blood levels and they were given asap but the doctor didn’t care. Well my primary gave him a piece of his mind. Any who my blood levels had actually gone up but for some odd reason I still felt horrible . Very weak and pale, unable to eat and I couldn’t even find pleasure in being pleasured 😉 . Not being nasty it’s just that I never had that problem and the doc says I should be very very active in that area. Yes, at times it’s a bit of a pain in the you know what but never do I not at least want it. So, I was tested over and over and told to get rest and plenty of fluids. By the time I got home I was hurting even more and realized that I hadn’t received a visit from my monthly friend 😉 . I dread her visits! Always! She seems to make everything worst. All aches and pains. Whoever now I’m missing her and I think this is the reasoning behind the extra pain,discoloration of my eyes, weakness and such, oh, and my blood levels being high. Am I right or do I need to call my doctor to have a checkup or birth control to make it come?
    My mom says that this has happened before….I was young and do not remember.
    Why are my eyes so yellow if I am fine?
    Why is there unusual pain?
    Is it natural for my blood levels to be a point higher than normal (for me)¿

    • @feeyah, My eyes are yellow all the time, even when I’m fine. When I’m sick it becomes a darker tint of yellow. Regarding your menses , if you have not gotten your period yet, you should definitely take a pregnancy test. Then ask your ob/gyn doctor what else might be going on. It might not even be related to SickleCell, there might be something else going on in your system that you need to get checked out. Hope you figure it out.

  21. what a good article i have been searching through the year that i was born till then i had never reed same good words of comforting and to knwon that iam not alone in this battle for i fell proud that technology has boosted up a can still give people knowlege to write ……….Iam waldik, from Angola and iam 22yrs old i was born with sickle cell anemia till then whenever a go to the hospital the doc would recommend me folic acid which i take oneºs a day and since then i have never taken any other pills so i readin some of the articles and people came suggestin this Nigerian medicine solamin i would like to know how can i buy ………….my phone number is +244934038648………

  22. Growing up I was always teased about my yellow eyes. Those sly offhand comments “you’re eyes are fluorescing”, the names like “yellow eyes”, “torchhead” etc, they got to me and made me very self-consious. As I got older and the kids around me became more “considerate young adults”, the yellow eyes just became a que for caring questions.. “are you ok? your eyes are yellow.”, “you need to drink more water girl, you’re not looking good”. While I’m grateful that most people are kind about it, I resent the fact that my eyes serve as a beacon for the world to see the state of my health. I consider that a very private matter.

    Thankfully, since going on Hydroxyurea my eyes have really cleared up, mainly because my health has generally improved greatly. So when I see those yellow tinges coming up in the morning, i’m drinking water like a camel all day long.

    I generally keep the fact that I have sickle cell to myself and a very close knit small group of friends. So the other day, when the yellowness just wouldn’t budge and a friend turned round and asked “Why are your eyes yellow? Have you got some sort of liver disease?!”, I flat out denied it, jokingly told him to get his eyes check and promptly left the room, heading to the cafe for a tall glass of mint tea. But I sort of wish I had said “Yes actually, I have sickle cell aneamia -insert short educational speech- and I’m a warrior.

  23. Hello,
    I live in the US and I would like to know if there is anywhere where I van purchase solamin. My eyes are very yellow and always have been. Because of it I am very shy and I don’t like meeting new ppl. When I do speak to anyone I don’t look them I’m the eye for more than a second or 2. Sometimes I fiddle with something or act busy so I don’t actually have to face them when they’re speaking to me. I have always been very embarrassed because no matter where I go I’m always dreading that inevitable question. ‘Why are your eyes yellow’? ‘Or are you ok? Your eyes are very yellow’. I feel like ppl are always judging me before they even get to know me because of my eyes. It’s even to the point where I feel I am losing career opportunities because of this. I am a nurse, I can almost see the look of disapproval whenever I go for an interview. Because on top of my bright yellow eyes I look like I’m 80lbs as I’ve been told way to many times to count. Alot of times i come home at might and cry for hrs. This affects my relationships with friends, my dating life, my professional life and I’m sick and tired of it. Sometimes I think I’ll rather be dead than look the way I do. I know it might be petty to some ppl but it’s something that I would never get used to. I’m desperate. I’ll try anything. Thank you for reading. I just needed to vent. I never told anyone I have SC. And I’ve NEVER spoken about how it makes me feel. It took me 12 years of knowing my best friend to confess to her but after that I never spoke about it.

  24. Am genotype ss, 32yrs old, i thought i was the only ss with chronic yellow eyes, i get so frustrated when i look inside my mirror to see my eyes jaundiced even when am fine, thanks be to God i dont often have crisis bt my problem has always been this yellow eyes, its just a relief to see u guys sharing ideas on this vital issue. People say sickle cell patients just live up to an average of 50yrs, but that’s not true cos i have seen sicklers at the sickle cell clinics who r over 60yrs and still healthy. I believe with lifestyle modification, prayer, and having a close relationship with God, there is hope for SC patients to live longer. I hv always prayed to get a drug that will clear this jaundice, thanks for letting me know abt solamin, this is too good to be true, i just hope it has no side effects?

  25. Hi My name is kerron smith im in high school and not alot but sometimes people ask me why do i have yellow eyes. This really hurts me and makes me angry at everyone.

  26. Hi everyone . I have a quick question for anyone taking solamin. I bought it for my son who is a baby and everytime I try giving it to him, he breaks down and cries. Is it very bitter and can you mix it with anything to musk the taste.

  27. @Vivian, I’m in my 5th day now, its seriously bitter, what i do is squeeze down orange in my mouth after wards, but for a baby i don’t know if he can take oranges, you can give him NATURAL (must be natural) honey after taking the drug, again, if its okay for the baby. And if he still breast feeds, try feeding him after and if he breast feeds you obviously changed your diet too right?

  28. hi my name is ambria but people’s call me bria i have had sickle cell cent’s i was 2 years old i have been in and out of doc office’s , e;r , ect i just would like to say i eat all differences type of bake foods,junk food ,juice sode ,everything my eyes r always yellow but i never cried r just flat bad about my eyes i just pray take things day by day and slow i just keep thinking that I’m live till I’m 100 I’m not going to lat sickle cell take over i just take it as god gave me sickle cell for a reason that’s make’s me different and by being different i’m special .i take my meds , take care of myself i don’t smoke r drink but i do smoke weed that helps me eat more and helps wit my pain some time’s just pray ,, bria bria 2013 i know I’m a warrior

    im 20year old student.precisly.doctor-in-training.dat is, im a medical student.i have a role model who is my personal doctor and he is also a sickle cell patient nd in his late 60is.
    Is not our own making dat we are ss. Is a call dat we are to fight.we are not worse.we are warriors. I know of a characteristic following ss, dat is, we lack self esteem. Nd dat is vry bad. d fact dat we hav yellow eye dosent mean we should let good opportunity falling out from us. Instead we should alway try nd help ourselves.
    ss are acedemically brillant. yes i know of dat. So wat is remining?energy!!!
    U can create ur own energy.
    Follow ur doctor directions take malaria drugs,folic acid,b complex,noni,solamin,vit e,omega3.nd help ur self wit wat u eat, rest and prevent stress.good water intake.nd enough sleep.another secret is pepper.wen having crisis tak hot water filled with pepper,it relaeses ur blood, pain reliever.nd protect urself from cold.take fruits.nd ur eyes wil never be yellow.
    Is us dat courses d yellowness of our eye.yes!!.y is it dat after having crisis our eyes clear?
    Wat u eat turns it color yelow. prevent preserved food, is bad for our system,reduce protein intake, help urself so dat ur self esteem will be ok.nd ur eyes nevr yellow
    u may not have d chance of getting solamin.take dis steps nd pray to ur God for help. He hears!!!.

  31. Stil d same uche
    talking about us.prevously i listed some steps to follow
    i want to let u know dat i nevr give my eye breathing space to turn yellow.reflectin on the knowlege i have about life span of sickle cel i can rem. Dat sickle red blood cell takes 10 to 15 days to complete its life span while nomal genotype takes 120 days. Dis cause excessive bilirubin to be over worked by d liver.
    Know dat it is not only dos dat are sicklers posses yellow eyes also people with liver problem have yellow eyes. Wen dis liver is over work it turns to jaundice. Causing yellow eyes.
    D life span of RBC of sickler associating wit liver needs to be corrected dat means u reduce liver work load by
    taking in excessive water.especially in d night
    find out wat a SAINT LEAVE(nchonwu in igbo lang) is and take a list 4 times a week dis help to clear ur yellow eyes leaving it excessivly white
    except u have malaria
    if u hav malaria no mater how u purify ur liver it will be yellow.
    Take only natural food making it 80% of ur consumtion.Tanx sickle cell warrior for creating dis net forum.

  32. I KNOW THE FEELING BOUT THE YELLOW EYES, MINES GET GREEN SOMETIMES TO BUT THE DOCTOR TOLD ME IT WAS CAUSE OF MY BUMIC LEVEL WAS TO HIGH… THAT’S WHY WE HAVE THEM..

  33. i have had yellow eyes for as long as i can remember and i am 20yrs old. people notice them and get concerned. i got tested for jaundice but my results were clear (no jaundice). i get worried sometimes that i might have sickle cell cause people usually ask me if i do. would any body happen to know what causes the yellow colour in my eyes if not jaundice…they sometimes get wors especially when i am on medication.

  35. Hello, have started using solamin and Esomron for my 3yrs old son and i discovered that his hair is turning grey.Is it due to the supplement or the antibiotics i gave him before i started to adminster the supplement?

  36. @Tired01, I feel you to the core, I work in the building construction industry and ITS NOT BEEN EASY being a tall woman (5ft 11inches) and underweight, but God is faithfull, we cry, we resign, we are fired, we get depressed and wish to die, but there is a CONSTANT and thats God, take heart, warrior!! And some solamin!

  37. Pls wat is solamin, and its uses. I’m 24 yrs old female living in nigeria and my doctors only prescribe folic acid and paludrin. Is there any medications I need apart from those, pls help because my eyes are always yellow people even think I have hepatitis!

  38. I have noticed that many of the narcotics to relieve pain cause constipation. so my question is if the BiliRuben that causes jaundice is not released due to constipation from pain releiving narcotics (IV and oral) what are the options? Laxitives? Surely urine alone wont rid the body of the biliruben that causes jaundice.

  39. Am nt in nigeria am in uganda but i nid help to get solamain and esmoron hw can i get it help coz am eyes are so yellow

  40. Ayesha, God bless you for throwing more light on this solamin drug, and for the numbers you left. I believe we can have whatever we say cos life and death is in the power of the tongue. I believe I will use solamin and my genotype will change forever just as Ayesha’s son…..Amen. so Uche go for it and believe!

  47. Wow I missed dis page. You can call me on 07069628646.
    Solamin is good. if you want to use it I will encourage u. Cos I also used it. but the truth is dat no drug whether herbal or modern can eliminate sickle red blood cell. Solamin present to you opportunity to have white eyes than before but it is not hundred percent. Some cases like malaria can arise and lead to yellow eyes.
    But today I have come to also uplift your spirit and put a smile on your face.
    Gone were d days when I ask God to change my genotype, my parents will aways pray to God for that but I will say to them.dats not necessary. I don’t know if any one is as proud as I am as a sickle cell patient. I love my self d way I am. Some of you might be askin what is this gurl taking abt, jst know dat Sickle cell was a gift given to u to be maintained by God. Ability for you to maintain it makes you a warrior. I’m perfect in its managmnt, though I most confess dat sickle cell is a serious disease.
    So how do you maintain sickle cell
    Maintaining SC can be centered on diff. Aspects of life
    1.Maintaining white eyes
    2.maintaining a perfect physique which include eliminating abnormal fat belly
    3.Reducing SC crisis and so on
    All my life I have searched for solns on a perfect life the more I searched the more I realized I am meant to save other SC patients with my findings and That’s wat I have been doin.
    I will not discourse on any of the managemnt now cos dat will be like writing a novel. But I wil tell you a secret dat I used to be very proud of who I am, a secret dat made me better dan all in a gathering. A secret dat makes pple to say, I want to look like Uche. But dey do not know who Uche is, they do not know my genotype yet they wish to be like me. The secret I used is LOVE. Yes, I used love. Love yourself and dats also means loving yourself as a sickler. You will see a new you.

    You can get scent leave at any local store or u can call me. Scent leaf benefit was highlighted on my previous write up.
    Uche is an inspirational talker and ready to make frnds on dis page for more info on ANY question you want to ask abt SC I’m always available to help.
    Tanks and dis time I will continue to check back on dis page.

  48. I’m sorry I made mistake on my spelling the last time I wrote about Scent leaf. Pls the correct spelling is scent leaf and not saint leaf. Dis will help you more to google it. But info. Abot scent leaf benefis on SC is difficult to find on net. It was just a natural experience and I got to know abt it form my personal doctor who happens to be a sickler and in his 60s now. Scent leaf is one of d best things dat can happen to you. And d good news is dat it is just a vegetable like any other vegetable so it is hundred percent safe and cheap

  54. I’m also ss with very thick yellow eye balls. I hate meeting new people and also avoid having eye contact with people because the next thing I’ll hear will be “why are your eyes yellow?” I’d just instantly feel bad about the question and ask my self if they really needed to bother about my eyes after all it isn’t theirs. I stopped having crises since I was fifteen and also stopped taking medication…I’m 18 now…I’ve used solamin and esomaron and they didn’t make things better…I just read here that I’m not supposed to take processed food and junks while using the drugs,I didn’t know…I guess that’s why it didn’t work. I’ll try to find the drugs and use them and at the same time stick to the rules and overcome the temptation of eating junk foods. I hate oranges and pineapples and some other fruits. I’ll also try taking fruits now. I’m honestly tired of these yellow eyes. Thank you for opening this thread…I’ve learnt a lot!

  56. World sickle cell day incredibly boring: Good morning all, It is unfortunate that we the sickle cell patients suffer a lot of neglect, we only get a pity party rather than help, this neglect touches my heart I cannot believe people die and will still continue to die when someone like me here can boldly say we have effective, harmless natural remedies here in Nigeria. I am a living testimony of this unpopular local product ( 33 years and a mother) We also have a number of kids testimonies of this product, some I met on this platform. Why cant I get support for this product so I can help save many more lives of the Africa children living with sickle cell or even across the globe . May be I don’t know what to do, may be am not doing something right. CAN SOMEBODY HELP ME, CAN SOMEBODY HELP “US WARRIORS” to standardize the product. We need interested researchers for this product. Some of us dared to be bold and trusted this product, used it religiously and got wonderful result and are happier patient or parents today. Some dumped it carelessly because they expected Sickle disease to be cured magically within just few weeks and that dint happen. Which ever method we
    choose to care for our Warriors, a healthy beautiful lifestyle is what we can all wish ourselves. To know more about this product, reach out to me today on +2348032239639, +2348022222173( whatsapp) or email lajumoke001@yahoo.com . I refuse to fold my arms #saveasicklecellchild# Olajumoke.

  62. Hi I have a 4year old boy with SS disease. God has been very good to him because he hardly gets sick. The only problem I have with him is the yellow on his and now some people are beginning to notice and I hate it. I was reaching on the internet where I came across the article about Solamin. I called the London # and the lady will be mailing it for me by this week. I am so exited for my son because kids are so cruel already and I don’t want anything to make him feel bad about himself. It is very nice to have to have a blog for people with this terrible disease. Its nice to share stories and give each other advice. Once I start my son on it I will let you guys know how its working for him.

  63. FLAWDA::BABii YES, a person with slicke cell anemia (SCA) does provide some protection against getting malaria. Only in some individuals do malaria episodes progress to severe life-threatening disease, while in the majority the episodes are self-limiting. This is partly because of host genetic factors such as the slicke cell gene. The slicke cell gene is caused by a single amino acid mutation. Inheritance of this mutated gene from both parents leads to slicke cell disease and people with this disease have shorter life expectancy. On the contrary, individuals who are carriers for the slicke cell disease (with one slicke gene and one normal hemoglobin gene, also known as slicke cell trait) have some protective advantage against malaria. As a result, the frequencies of slicke cell carriers are high in malaria-endemic areas. Most early studies of the connection between slicke cell trait and malaria allowed us to investigate this connection. The slicke cell trait provides 60% protection against overall mortality. Most of this protection occurs between 2-16 months of life, before the onset of clinical immunity in areas with intense transmission of malaria.

  69. Hi guys, the Solamin I ordered for my son came a couple of months ago. I give it To him everyday. I was also told by Dr. Solomon who is the founder of Solamine to give him sugar cane juice as much as I can to prevent the yellowing of the eyes. I have to say I have seen major changes in my 4yr old son. He has so much energy, and he doesn’t complain of pain. His eyes are also not yellow anymore. I will be taking him for some blood work in a few days and I can’t wait to see when his results will be. I will keep you guys posted.

  70. My two year old is a sufferer and with big stomach I feel so embarrassed when people ask me about his big stomach.i cry all day to change his story,a bit relieve with this post.can anyone tell me d cause of his bulging stomach

    • @Aremu, it’s common in those with sickle cell. Please don’t cry about it anymore. He is a sickle cell warrior! Our organs work harder to process all the damaged sickled red blood cells so like any muscle they get enlarged. I have always had a round stomach and I’m proud of it because it means that my body is still working and I am ALIVE!

  71. Hi I’ve been trying the solamin for about 3 months and I see no changes,and I asked the person that sold them to me if my eyes will get white and he said no the solamin doesn’t help with that.

  72. Am Blezzy from Kenya. How can I get that remedy for yellow eyes. Pleased help. Call or WhatsApp me on 0707349384. Your help will be my pleasure.

  73. for years i suffered from jaundice i was shy and with drawn and wanted to kill myself!
    one time my billirubin was a 9.0 this was during my pregnancy so you can just imagine my eyes looked like they were on fire. i tried everything from shades, to contacts. it was not until i turned 29 and i was advised by my NEW doctors in a new state to start using hydroxyurea they started me on 4 pills a day and with in 2 weeks my eyes were the whitest i have ever seen them in my life. i cried! because i could no make eye contact with people. and i was also feeling better. it’s been 4yrs since i first started on it, i went from being in the hospital once a month to only 3 times in 4yrs! i know not every one likes hydroxyurea but i have had nothing but postive results. now my long natural hair has fallen out a bit and it not to the middle of my back anymore, but i don’t care because my eyes are whiter and i feel much better. try hydroxyurea and see if it helps to clear your yellow eyes. make sure to still drink plenty of water and take care of your self. good luck and God bless you all.

    • @Zee, not sure what that is, but try to connect with your OBGYN. They may be able to give you advice and help. You may need to have blood transfusions throughout your pregnancy to keep the baby (this is what happened to me). Don’t give up on your dream to have a baby. And if you try again and still don’t carry to term, look into adoption. You can still be a mom even though you didn’t give birth. Motherhood is loving someone more than you love yourself. Any woman can do that.

  76. I am pregnant, my parents must know ….atleast not yet. what can I do. I have stopped all my pain killers for now, but i am in pain.

    • @Tosin, you need to go see a high risk OBGYN for your pregnancy. You also need to see a hematologist to monitor your sickle cell. Together, these doctors can come up with a plan to address your pain and ensure you have a safe delivery. Tell your parents so they can also offer their support

  84. My dear warriors you are all doing fine. God is with us. I’m a sickle cell counselor having lost a loved one to it. Ever since I have been following up on SCD research. Solamin and Esamaron are such a good combination. With them you can live a normal crisis free life. No more yellow eyes, protruded tummy. You will add weight and have that energy you have always lacked. The supplement is a miracle for SCD condition.

  85. I came across this post and read about so many testimonies. I am a male and live in abia state. I am 18yrs and do not have SCD, my genotype is AA but I have yellow eyes and people think I have SCD. I have gone for a series of tests which still proves I do not have SCD, everyone in my family has clear white eyes. I don’t know what else to do about my eyes. I don’t get sick as well, so I read that solamin can clear the yellow eyes. Please, where in abia state can I purchase it?
