Is a woman with sc blood genotype a sickle cell carrier or patient. And what is the health implication of this especially during pregnancy?
Hgb SC: Is a sickle cell syndrome but the genetics are different. A woman with HGB sc will pass either a HGB s gene, or a HGB c gene to her child. It is important to know what kind of HGB the father has-he should have a hemoglobin electrophoresis to find out how the child might be affected. Pregnancy complications are rare, but the baby can have a low weight, and rarely there are complications for the mom. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there a genetic test in UK that can tell if a person is a poor metabolizer with Clopidogrel having two copies of each of the CYP2C19 gene.?
Phenotype is the big: issue, not genotype, because we each live with the complex results of both genotype combined with all our complex internal controls, beyond the any gene or sets of genes alone. Since clopidgrel is a platelet suppressing, clot-slowing agent, best check clotting with & without whatever trial dosage. The best of the clotting tests is TEG, study: Thromboelastography, commonly used in hospitals. ...Read more

Down syndrome.: For many reasons (longevity, inability to care for self, chronic health problems, neurodevelopmental delay and dementia) this is a particularly hard genetic condition for families to bear; don't misunderstand me, i personally think some of the affected individuals are charismatic and a blessing to their families, but typically they are a heavy burden (>90% 5-year divorce rate reported). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
