Hello, I am a sickle cell patient aged 22, I

Patient : Hello, I am a sickle cell patient aged 22, I already completed my Bachelors degree studies in my home country. I applied for Korea Government scholarship and was successfully selected to study my masters in South Korea. Part of the requirement is a medical form, indication, *Have you had any ailment, sickness and disease in the last five years? I feel I don't have to mention my sickle cell as a reply to that question since sickle cell is hereditary. While on the other side, I'm thinking o should make mention of it and indicate what I can do to make sure it doesn't hinder my studies in korea, like using of folic acid and proguanuil. What do you advice sir, I already did other required medical test like xray, HIV , Hepatitis and Urinary and Stool analysis and passed all this test. Its only the sickle cell case that I'm worried of . I also need to submit an hemoglobin test and it came out as 7 i.e PCV of 22%. What would you advice sir?
