Is Brights Disease Hereditary
Blast from the past: Bright's Disease = an historical term we last used for inflammation of kidney cells ~ 40 years ago for post- streptococcal glomerulonephritis which, like rheumatic fever, was common because of the strains of "strep" in B'ham, AL, at the time. Acute & chronic immune & non- immune causes of nephritis are listed on www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/PMC1786202/. Treatment & outcome depends on cause. ...Read more
To a small extent.: Meniere's may be due to multiple factors. Theories do include a genetic predisposition, as patients with the disease and a family history have an earlier age of onset and more severe symptoms from one generation to the next. Other theories include fluid build-up in the inner ear due to blockage, a viral infection, and an autoimmune condition. As such, most cases are not familial. ...Read more

No, thus far, no such a suspicion is confirmed. But considering life as a one-way street of accumulation, modification, ; continuation from inception to eternity. It's would be irrelevant, either hereditary or not.

Mostly not inherited: The vast majority of people with Parkinson's seem to get it sporadically, that is without any clear inheritance from family. That being said, we've found around 12 genetic variants that seem to greatly increase the risk of developing pd in some families. Some of them are recessive (rarely crops up), and some are dominant (50% chance of getting it from 1 affected parent). ...Read more
To a minor degree: Most cases of chrohn's disease are sporadic. There is a small tendency for it to run more commonly in families but identical twins for instance do not both always have the condition so there is probably an inheritance component lowering the susceptibilility but not being causative. ...Read more
Some familial cases: Disease can be familial or develop spontaneously. It is more common in boys than girlls. Approximately 3-5 % of male siblings and 1 percent of female siblings of children with short-segment disease also have the disease. Risk substantially higher (12.4-33%) in siblings of children with total colonic involvement. Eight genomes have been associated with Hirschsprung’s disease. Most cases not familial. ...Read more
No: Vitiligo is due to depigmentation of the skin. It is not hereditary but. .. It is often associated with autoimmune disorders and many people with vitiligo also have a corresponding autoimmune disorder. Autoimmune disorders do have a genetic basis. Also, vitiligo as part of a group of symptoms is often associated with inherited genetic syndromes. In most cases it is not genetically inherited. ...Read more
Buerger's Disease: According to Mayo Clinic " It's possible that some people may have a genetic predisposition to the disease." http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/buergers-disease/basics/causes/con-20029501 ...Read more
Trigeminal neuralgia: There is no hereditary component for trigeminal neuralgia. No geographic tendency or racial differences have been found for trigeminal neuralgia. However, females are affected up to twice as often as males (range, 3:2 to 2:1). In addition, in 90% of patients, the disease begins after age 40 years, with a typical onset of 60-70 years (middle and later life). ...Read more
It's Complicated: In x-linked disorders, the allele for the trait is located on the x chromosome. In recessive traits, both parents must pass on a copy of the recessive allele for the child to be affected. For a son (xy) to be affected, his mom must pass on the recessive allele (since the dad passes the y and is not a factor). For a daughter (xx), both parents must pass it. ...Read more
Word games: Congenital can be applied to any issue present at birth. It is time oriented as opposed to an issue that develops later, or is "acquired".Hereditary speeks to the origin of an issue, as related to the genes that triggers a feature. You can have a genetic feature that is congenital, web fingers. You can also have a genetic illness that is not evident until older, hunington's disease. ...Read more
Many symptoms: There are many different types of collagen diseases. In general these are autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, systemic sclerosis. There really is in one specific symptom that fits all diseases except possibly generalized pain and tiredness. If you have specific questions, you should see your family practice physician. ...Read more
How can the inheritance of colorblindness and hemophilia differ from other diseases that can be inherited?
X-linked vs. Others: Hemophilia and color blindness are inherited through x-chromosome. This means that females (who have two x chromosomes, which makes them females) are generally less affected. Males are more severely affected (they have one x and one y chromosome which lacks genes). Other modes are autosomal recessive (parents carriers), dominant (parent often affected) or mitochondrial (from maternal line). ...Read more
I was diagnosed with nephritis over 10 yrs ago. Is this hereditary? Will my children inherit this disease from me?
Depends on type: Nephritis means "inflammation of the kidney" and has many different causes including post streptococcal nephritis, lupes nephritis, membranoproliferative nephritis etc. None of the above are directly inherited. However there is a disease called "alports syndrome" that is inherited directly. You need to talk to your physician, find out what type of nephritis you had and have him/her advise you. ...Read more
