ABSTRACT:
The main objective of the study was to see association if any, between somatic symptoms/clinical manifestations with various socio-demographic factors which affect somatic problems in sickle cell anaemic adolescents. The data was collected purposively from 309 sickle cell anaemic (HbAS/HbSS) adolescents of both the sexes hailing from various districts of Chhattisgarh by using Interview schedule and a checklist of clinical manifestation. Out of 309 sickle cell anaemic adolescents, 72 were homozygous (23.3 percent) and 237 were heterozygous (76.7 percent). Study revealed that 63.1percent patients felt that weakness was higher in females as compared to males. 50.2 percent patients were anaemic which was also observed to be higher in females. Maximum (79.3 percent) patients belonged to lower socio-economic status. The highest percentage of sickle cell anaemia (21.0 percent) was observed in the 17 year age group. Significant negative relation was observed between somatic symptoms with age, gender, educational status of the patients, age at onset of sickling, family income, and socio-economic status. Only blood transfusion and zygosity showed positive correlation with somatic symptoms. The mean and standard value of different variables revealed that each patient with sickle cell anaemia had on average 3.64 problems. Mean age was 15.5 years and most of the patients were diagnosed at 12.23 years of age. Number of hospitalizations during the last one year was 3.25 (SD- 3.7). Blood transfusion during hospitalization was 1.29 (0.63 percent) and mean age at menarche was 13.2 (1.4 percent). The study observed significant contribution of independent variable of change on dependent variables.
