Can hereditary rickets be prevented? My family has a genetic kidney disorder that causes rickets. Is it possible to take steps to prevent my children from getting rickets this way?
There : There are multiple kinds of kidney associated hereditary rickets that all have different patterns of inheritance. Many are "autosomal recessive" which means that the child must get an affected gene from each parent in order to have the disease. Some are x-linked which means that women carry the gene and men get the disease. The other type is "autosomal dominant" which means that you only need one gene to have the disease and that gene can come from either parent.
