Genetic Disease (Definition)

A genetic disease is a disease that is caused by a defect in the genetic (dna) material in a gene (s). It can be inherited and mosy pose a risk to other family members and/or to future children. For many genetic diseases there are molecular tests that allow detection of a change (s) called mutations, we can also detect deltions or other changes to the gene's dna that can also result ...Read more

How can a genetic disorder be started?

Abnormal genes: A genetic disorder is caused by one more abnormalities within a genome. These abnormal genes can be inherited from your parents or can be a sporadic change. There are many genetic disorders that are caused by one abnormal gene, but there are also many other disorders that have both genetic and environmental components. Some of these disorders are present at birth and others manifest later in life. ...Read more

Is sanflippo syndrome a genetic disorder?

Yes it is: Sanfilippo syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis type iii) is a genetic condition. It is inherited in an autosomal recessive way. It means that both copies of the gene of a patient have a mutation (we have 2 copies of each gene, one from each parent). Parents of a patient each carry one copy of the mutated gene, and another healthy copy so they typically do not show signs and symptoms of the condition. ...Read more

What is the genetic disorder 22q deletion?

What is the genetic disorder 22q deletion?

22q11 deletion: 22q deletion could be any deletion on chromosome #22, in the q arm of chromosome. Each chromosome has a short (p) and a long (q) arm. On both arms many areas that can be deleted. The most common is the 22q11 deletion syndrome which is variable ranging from perhaps mild learning difference to congenital heart defect, immunodeficiency, or hypocalcemia (low blood calcium). Many genes are involved. ...Read more

Help please! Is diabetic a genetic disease?

Depends on type: Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease with antibodies that attack part of the pancreas. Although there may be a slight genetic component, this is generally thought to be sporadic-that is, people just get it regardless of family.

Type 2 does seem to be related to genetics. It is not a disease where if you have the gene you have the disease; rather, there appear to be risk factor genes. ...Read more

What is the most common genetic disorder in the U.S.?

Too complex to answer: There are Mendelian disorders: X-linked recessive, X-linked dominant, autosomal dominant, and autosomal recessive. There are genetic disorders caused by abnormal amounts of chromosomal material: trisomies, deletions, and duplications. The largest group are disorders in which there is clearly a genetic component, but non-genetic factors are also important. No easy answer. ...Read more

Genetic (Definition)

From a medical standpoint, "genetic" refers to the potential heritability of various medical conditions. While some conditions are inevitable (at some point in one's life) as a consequence of simple genetic heritability (eg huntington's disease), a large number of medical conditions (including all behaviorial health disorders) are the expressed final pathway of a ...Read more
