    Good morning. All things equal and if as true as you said then I can day it's your genotype that predisposes you to regular malaria attack.

    The plasmodium infection which causes malaria is a blood parasitic infection and the presence of sickle haemoglobin (Hb-S) in red blood cells limits the development and multiplication of the parasite. This is the reason it's believed that the AS and SS genetypes are less susceptible to malaria. You can try to avoid any area that breeds mosquito especially during the rainy season and always go for check up with your doctor since you always have malaria. All the best and thanks for using Kangpe.
