What Is A Dominant Trait
Input required: In dominant disorders, the dominant member of the gene pair controls how the gene activities are expressed, so the other gene can carry the same or normal information. In recessive disorders, the normal gene compensates for the bad information in the other gene, allowing a person to function normally unless both genes carry the bad information. ...Read more
Complex disease: Gestational diabetes (gdm), like type 2 diabetes, are related metabolic conditions with strong inherited genetic tendencies --- but multiple genes are involved in their expression (appearance in any person). So gdm is neither a dominant nor recessive trait. Whether a person gets gdm is also strongly impacted by age, weight, exercise levels, dietary factors, which are not genetically determined. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What do you suggest if my grandmother and my mother both have tested positive for celiac disease. Is it a dominant or recessive trait?
Genetic: You may carry the gene for celiac- It is not a dominant or recessive gene. It is a gene that is associate to a chromosome that has been identified. In order to get the condition, you need to have the gene and an environmental trigger. You can be tested to see if you have the gene. The DR8 gene profile is seen in a large part of the population and may explain why celiac is being seen often. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ok: Thal trait is different from thal major--the trait has one chromosome for this disease and the full disease means each parent gave the trait and that the child got a thalassemia gene from each parent which can cause thal major, a very serious and transfusion requiring process. There are different types of thalassemia--some more concerning than others. Please ask your doctor. ...Read more
Cooley's Anemia: Thalassemia is a blood disorder passed down through families (inherited) in which the body makes an abnormal form of hemoglobin, the disorder results in excessive destruction of red blood cells, which leads to anemia. Thalassemia trait is a genetic possibility you pass on to your offspring. The most important reason for discovering if you carry the thalassemia trait is this: if two people who each. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
