Trisomy (Definition)

Ordinary chromosomal traits require a pair of chromosomes to determine the traits. Occasionally, as a mistake in cellular division, there is a tripling of one of the chromosomes. When these occur, they usually cause unpleasant, and sometimes deadly conditions in the inheritor of these traits (e.g. Down's). Many we do not know about as they are ...Read more

What is patau syndrome, a trisomy?

Trisomy 13: Patau syndrome is also called trisomy 13. It occurs when a baby has 3 copies of the number 13 chromosome instead of the usual 2 copies. It causes severe physical problems and most babies with trisomy 13 die before birth or within the first year after birth. It usually happens because of an accident which occurs when the egg is fertilized, and occurs more commonly as mothers get older. ...Read more

How to know that I am ovulating using calculator?

You don't: Calculators make assumptions that everybody ovulates and that everybody has periods every month. However, this may not necessarily be the case. Calculator will just give you an ovulation date 2 weeks prior to your menses. To be certain that you actually ovulate, you should purchase an OPK and use it as directed, generally start testing ~ day 10 if you have regular periods. ...Read more

Is there such thing as a reverse due date calculator?

Is there such thing as a reverse due date calculator?

Sort of: If your due date is based off of an ultrasound, you could then see when you most likely had your menses and when you conceived.

Is that what you mean?

If you are sure of your menstrual period, it should correlate closely with your due date from an ultrasound.

I hope that helps. :). ...Read more

How to know when I am ovulating using online calculator?

Not accurate: Online calculators make lots of assumption. First they assume that you ovulate, which is not the case for all women. Then they either assume that your periods are exactly 28 days apart or that you ovulate exactly 14 days before your next period. A better way is to use over the counter ovulation prediction kits which will help you know when exactly you are ovulating and time intercourse ...Read more

Can doctors tell if a baby has trisomy when it is not yet born?

Can doctors tell if a baby has trisomy when it is not yet born?

Sure!: Non-invasive tests such as maternit21 can now reliably predict the birth of an infant with Down syndrome or other trisomy syndromes such as patau and edwards; this method has not risk for the pregnancy, as it is performed on maternal blood (contains fetal dna). Invasive prenatal diagnosis techniques can also arrive at the same information by sampling fetal/placental tissues (amniocentesis, cvs). ...Read more

What is the difference in GFR calculators? Some tell me my egfr is 59 and some tell me its 62?

Difference in GFR: The answer to you question is that the GFR calculators give an estimated, not an actual, gfr. The calculation used to estimate the GFR is based on a person's age, sex, race, height and weight. The difference in your estimated GFR levels is about 5%, perhaps your weight was different. The only way to know what your real GFR is is to have a doctor order a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance. ...Read more

I heard that certain people are more likely to get trisomy number 13 patau syndrome than others, why is that?

Child of older mom: Increasing maternal age increases the risk for chromosome disorders, highlighted by trisomy 21 (down syndrome) but applying to rarer trisomies like the trisomy 13 causing patau syndrome (1 in 8000 births or so). Risks for trisomy increase gradually with maternal age, going from <1 in 2000 under 30 to ~ 1 in 50 over age 40, with age 35 arbitrarily set as high risk (~1 in 200). ...Read more

I have two ovulation-calculator apps, it said. Different answers. One it said last week on 4/15 and the other one it said today 4/20. Confusing, help?

Dates: On a normal cycle your ovulation is 14 days before your next period. But since you can't foretell the future, this is of little help. You might have 11-17 days from the beginning of your period until ovulation. After ovulation it is always 14 days to your period. The apps have to assume a 25 day cycle or a 28 day or a 31 day cycle - thus the difference. ...Read more

Yes it can: When (date) and "how far along were you" (gestational age) when the US for dating was done? Ultrasounds in the second trimester can be off by as much as a week in either direction, third trimester US can be off by even more. First trimester (1st twelve weeks) should be correct +/- 3 days, I hope this helps. ...Read more

What is trisomy 13?

Chromosome error: Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes (c) making up our dna.When the egg or sperm form, the (c) pairs are supposed to split up with 1 (c) of each pair going to the egg or sperm. If the 13 (c) does not split & both go into an egg, fertilization will add a 3rd from dad & a trisomy 13 will begin to form. The imbalanced (c) causes malformations, miscarriage or early death. ...Read more

What're the causes of trisomy 18?

What're the causes of trisomy 18?

Error in formation: During the formation of the egg or sperm, the chromosome (c) pairs split with one of each going to the egg or sperm. At conception, the egg & sperm each bring 1 of each (c) & the embryo starts with a pair of each. If there is an error & the 18pair doesn't split but donates a pair of 18's to the egg, then it picks up a 3rd from the sperm. Age/toxins/radiation etc all may play a role in (c) errors. ...Read more

What is trisomy?

Error in formation: Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes or 46 total. During the formation of the egg, each pair splits and one of each travels to the egg. At conception, the sperm brings one of each & the new embryo now has 23 pairs (two of each). Any time one of the chromosome pairs doesn't split & gives a pair to the egg, a third will come from the sperm and a trisomy of that chromosome is formed. ...Read more

This is complicated.: It's complicated because full trisomy 16 is 99.9% fatal before birth. Newborns with partial trisomy 16 may live - most have multiple birth defects and serious developmental problems. The exact types of birth defects are different depending on what parts of chromosome 16 are duplicated. Your clinical geneticist or genetic counselor can help. You can find a GC here: http://nsgc.

What other trisomy's are there besides 21 and what do they cause?

What other trisomy's are there besides 21 and what do they cause?

Many: Only about 1 in four conceptions go to term. The others are mostly all affected by either trisomies or monosomies, and are incompatible with survival. Most die before implantation, and a mom won't even know that conception had occurred. Many may implant, but die either before an embryo is visible (a blighted ovum) or later. Trisomies 13, 18, and 21 may survive until birth. ...Read more
