Is meniere's disease hereditary?

Is meniere's disease hereditary?

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

Could eating disorders be inherited?

Could eating disorders be inherited?

Not exactly.: Some studies point to a genetic predisposition towards eating disorders, but in my experience it is not inherited in the sense of a medical issue such as heart disease. In families where both a parent and a child has an eating disorder, it usually has a basis in behavior rather than biology. The child is emulating the parent's behavior with food, weight, body image, etc. ...Read more

Could you tell me what is the name of the defect that causes non-inherited genetic diseases?

Could you tell me what is the name of the defect that causes non-inherited genetic diseases?

Spontaneous mutation: Some inheritable disorders are also caused by spontaneous mutations. Advanced paternal age ^es risk. Nondisjunction = paired chromosomes don't separate during cell division. The fetus receives 2 or 0 copies from egg or sperm. Advanced maternal age ^es risk.. Copy repeat errors are similar, when baby inherits 0 or 2 copies of a small sequence of genes from mom or dad. ...Read more

How is Parkinson's disease inherited?

How is Parkinson's disease inherited?

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

Is it true that chromes disease is hereditary?

Is it true that chromes disease is hereditary?

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

Is conduct disorder hereditary?

Yes: It is heretiable in a few ways, modeling, watching parents results in similar behavior, impulse control has heretible components, and if a child's needs are not met by his caregivers, he will not develop empathy, only survival strategies and tend to violate the rights of others-the hallmark of conduct disorder. ...Read more

Is hirschsprung's disease hereditary?

Is hirschsprung's disease hereditary?

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

Is vitiligo a disease that is hereditary?

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

Is there a hereditary component to Fothergills disease?

Is there a hereditary component to Fothergills disease?

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

How does inheritance work in x-linked recessive diseases?  

How does inheritance work in x-linked recessive diseases?  

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

Can you tell me examples of inherited coagulation disorders?

Can you tell me examples of inherited coagulation disorders?

Yes: A coagulation defect changed world history. Queen Victoria passed it to her daughter Alice, who in turn passed it to Alexandra, wife of Czar Nicholas, whose son Alexii was a bleeder--and they fell under the influence of Rasputin, ignoring the affairs of state. Carrier women are not affected; their normal factor VIII gene on their other X-chromosome makes up for the abnormal gene. ...Read more

Please tell me if angelman syndrome is inherited or a disorder?

Please tell me if angelman syndrome is inherited or a disorder?

Sometimes: Some cases are due to a mutation carried by the mother. Most are due to spontaneous mutations or epigenetic events in the fertilized egg. So, the risk of Angelman may be inherited, but the disease may be genetic or due to epigenetic factors. It is one of the most complex genetic mechanisms yet discovered, and a clinical geneticist must analyze whether other family members are at up to 50% risk ...Read more

How can the inheritance of colorblindess differ from other diseases?

How can the inheritance of colorblindess differ from other diseases?

Not really: Any disorder or genetic difference that is carried on the genes can cause differences in how the body develops and how the sensory organs develop. Color vision has several forms but the inheritance, a change in the protein coded for by the genes, works by the same process. ...Read more
