Celiac autosomal recessive?

Possibly

Marker
There are several gene-markers which make a person more likely but not certainly to develop celiac disease. It is certainly not sex-linked. Perhaps there are still other genetic markers or mutations required for one to develop the full-blown disease.

How is autosomal recessive inheritance different?

Both parents

Open-uri20120101-16159-hwog4e
Autosomal recessive inheritance means that you have to inherit the gene from BOTH parents. Some examples: cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease.

Is autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease very serious?

It is different

Kidney
It usually is more serious than the autosomal dominant disease since it needs inheritance from both parents to be expressed i.e. both genes are affected. It accordingly gets expressed at an earlier age in life. The longer duration of polycystic disease is a factor in predicting dialysis need.

Is a child with a autosomal recessive disease for sure going to be bad off?

Depends on the dz

Rollerblading
This all depends on which disease the child has. Some autosomal recessive diseases can be relatively innocuous (e.g., McArdle's Syndrome), whereas others can be quite serious (e.g., Cystic Fibrosis). The classification of "autosomal recessive" describes how the disease is inherited; it does not define the characteristics of the disease itself.

Is there a difference between autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease?

Yes

Kidney
The dominant form occurs mostly in adults. It is inherited but it takes time to show up as a diagnosable disease in middle to later age. Depending on your luck you either have it from your parent or not( 50% chance).the recessive form could be carried by seemingly healthy persons and when manifests as a disease in the offspring, it shows up at a much earlier age

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Please help! What is the difference between autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease?

Genes

Kidney
There are caused by different loci. The recessive form generally causes illness from the time of birth due to the large, ineffective kidneys. The dominant form sneaks up on a person during adult life. The affected kidneys look different in the two diseases

I have calcium oxalate stones in my two kidneys and i have PKD,autosomal recessive kidney disease,please advice what type of food i should eat!

Live the way you are

Diabetic_kidney_problems
Do you mean kidney cystic disease? If so, it has no bearing on kidney stones, which is usually a separated condition but requires periodic check on the liver and kidney function. Without detailed study, a universal stone-preventive advice includes maintaining more than 2500 cc daily urine output and decreasing oral consumption of salt, red meat, and dairy products by 50%. Ask doctors for detail

Dr. Judy Black answered:

Does autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease of one parent could be genetically transmissible to one of the children and what is the percentage?

Can transmit

Children
For a recessive disorder you need an abnormal gene from each parent. The parent without ARPCKD may have one abnormal gene but has one normal one. This is called being a "carrier". The parent with ARPCKD has 2 abnormal genes. If the parent without the disease is a carrier, there is a 50% chance that the child will have ARPCKD. If the parent is not a carrier, there is a 0% chance.

Is Edward's Syndrome autosomal or sex-linked? Dominant or recessive?

None of the above

After_sex
Edward Syndrome is brought on by an abnormality of chromosome numbers, specifically an extra 18. The abnormal egg with a single chromosome 1-17 & 19-22 + X has a pair of 18's. When the sperm brings a single chromosome 1-22 + X or Y then the embryo ends up with 47 chromosomes rather than 46 in every cell.(3-18's) The excess distorts the organ building information & defects arise.

What are recessive disorders?

Genetic term

Rollerblading
Genetic disorders fall roughly into dominant and recessive based on inheritance. If only one parent has a gene (brown eyes) but all children have that trait, then it's dominant; recessive traits require that both parents have the gene (blue eyes). If each parent has only one gene with that trait, then 1/4 of the children will express the trait.
