Hi, dietary ideas for genetic heamocromtosis ... Male?

Hi, dietary ideas for genetic heamocromtosis ... Male?

It is iron overload: Hemochromatosis is a disease in which the body acculumates excessive iron and treatment of choice is to donate blood regularly until your iron level is down to normal/near normal range. Since it is a state of iron excess, you should minimize foods high in iron--spinache, redmeats, egg yokes, clams/oysters, beans, liver, artichokes etc...Check with doc regularly. Good luck. ...Read more

Size doesn't count: We men are much too concerned with size. You're plenty big enough to satisfy women, yourself, and have a large family. I know it's easy for me to say and hard for you to accept, but don't focus on size. It's what you do with your partner that counts. ...Read more

What are the medical solutions for two thalassimia trait parents carriers to have children?

What are the medical solutions for two thalassimia trait parents carriers to have children?

Get the facts: I'm glad this was picked up before you considered becoming parents. If you have the same kind of thal trait (do you both have beta?) and things are otherwise as you say, each pregnancy has a 1/4 chance of thal major; most people very much do not want to bring a child into the world with this. I've read that preimplantation testing is available & hope this is an option. ...Read more

Why does my 9y/o girl w/severe autism eat her feces? Aggressive, non-verbal but sweet/affectionate. She digs in pants. SIB/tantrums/sensory/no MR/meds

Why does my 9y/o girl w/severe autism eat her feces? Aggressive, non-verbal but sweet/affectionate. She digs in pants. SIB/tantrums/sensory/no MR/meds

Bizzarre behavior: This may be a self soothing mechanism like rocking, other consoling mechanisms. Her severe autism leaves her without the normal social negative reinforcement of neurotypcal kids, meaning, she doesn't have the social awareness to remind her to stop the behavior. You may have some degree of success with social skills training with a therapist. Never spank her. Positive reinforcement works best! ...Read more

Are my parents the reason I have aspergers? Is asperger's syndrome inherited from your parents?

Are my parents the reason I have aspergers? Is asperger's syndrome inherited from your parents?

Partially perhaps: Scientists have long suspected that there are genetic and environmental components to asperger syndrome.A specific gene for asperger syndrome, however, has never been identified. Instead, the most recent research indicates that there are most likely a common group of genes whose variations or deletions make an individual vulnerable to developing asd. Environmental factors undoubtedly also play a role. ...Read more
