Is Hemochromatosis A Dominant Or Recessive Trait
Complex disease: Gestational diabetes (gdm), like type 2 diabetes, are related metabolic conditions with strong inherited genetic tendencies --- but multiple genes are involved in their expression (appearance in any person). So gdm is neither a dominant nor recessive trait. Whether a person gets gdm is also strongly impacted by age, weight, exercise levels, dietary factors, which are not genetically determined. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually acquired: Aortic regurgitation is usually an acquired disease. Some forms of congenital vascular disorders are associated with aortic valve problems such as Marfan's Syndrome and this can involve the aortic valve.This is rare. Marfan's is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern.Even more rarely it can also occur as a spontaneous mutation in someone who has no family history. ...Read more
My grandmother and my mother both have tested positive for celiac disease. Is this a dominant or recessive trait?
What do you suggest if my grandmother and my mother both have tested positive for celiac disease. is it a dominant or recessive trait?
Genetic: you may carry the gene for celiac- It is not a dominant or recessive gene. It is a gene that is associate to a chromosome that has been identified. In order to get the condition, you need to have the gene and an environmental trigger. You can be tested to see if you have the gene. The DR8 gene profile is seen in a large part of the population and may explain why celiac is being seen often. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Input required: In dominant disorders, the dominant member of the gene pair controls how the gene activities are expressed, so the other gene can carry the same or normal information.In recessive disorders, the normal gene compensates for the bad information in the other gene, allowing a person to function normally unless both genes carry the bad information. ...Read more
It's in the genes: In hereditary (= inherited from parents) hemochromatosis, too much iron is absorbed by the gut & deposits in tissues. Liver, heart, other damage can result. It is autosomal recessive: both parents must carry the gene & not all offspring will be affected. Secondary (= due to other causes) hemochromatosis can occur with certain types of hemolytic anemia (red blood cells bursting, releasing iron). ...Read more
