In researching your question about vitamin E (Alpha E) in sickle cell anaemia I found this . "One of the most important nutrients may be vitamin E, which protects the membranes of red blood cells against free radicals. Red blood cells from people deficient in vitamin E, as well as those from people with sickle-cell anemia, are more susceptible to free radical damage. As a result, low levels of vitamin E may increase the risk of sickle-cell symptoms. In addition, frequent blood transfusions may boost iron levels, which could lead to further free radical damage to red blood cells. "

If you are low in Vitamin E supplementation may help sickle-cell symptoms.
