Rare inherited dz: Belongs to a group of diseases known as the mucopolysaccaridoses. Affected individuals are unable to produce an enzyme that breaks down long chains of sugar. These long chains of sugar build up/damage organs like the heart. Symptoms can be mild to severe/death (deaf, mental retardation, joint-bone dz, clouded corneas, etc). Both parents must pass the faulty gene in order to have an affected child. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Having preeclampsia once what to do to prevent this again ?My babies died after 20 days in icu bec they were premature 28 weeks
Aspirin!: I am very sorry for your losses. Aspirin 80-81 mg daily would be my recommendation unless you are allergic or have gastritis or peptic ulcer disease. Take it before getting pregnant for maximal prophylaxis benefit: can be 15-75% decrease in risk of recurrent preeclampsia. Take calcium as well if you are lactose intolerant otherwise dairy product consumption suffices. Do not change sexual partners. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Monoamnionic twins: Of all "identical" twins, the rarest and most dangerous of all have monoamnionic monochorionic placentation, meaning one amnionic sac contains both, nourished from a single placenta, detectible by 9-10 weeks. These twins hardly ever survive because no membrane separates their cords, so the normal movement will eventually wind up twisting the two cords around each other until strangulation occurs ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

She should have some work-up by her neurologist and a geneticist to see if there is some genetic syndrome that puts her and her family at increased risk for brain tumors. ...Read more
