I am overweight but my wife has a perfect weight, will our child get the genes from the father and be overweight as well?

Obesity genes: There are over 50 genes that have been implicated in obesity.

You are a candidate for type ii diabetes. Eat only god made food. ...Read more

Hello, : Hello, the effectiveness for condoms when used consistently and correctly is about 98%. However, often they are not used consistently or correctly. Warfarin is contraindicated in pregnancy. However, by age 46, a woman's chance of becoming pregnant is exceeding low. It would be quite rare for a woman to still have viable eggs by that age. Congratulations ! ...Read more
