Could paternal DNA carrying a mutated genetic code that causes an auto-immune deficiency cause a miscarriage?
My girlfriend has gotten pregnant twice now and she has miscarried about the same time 3-5 weeks. I have an auto-immune disease that lowers all my immune levels if i passed this genetic disease onto our child could it cause a miscarriage or somehow affect the fetus.
I'm sorry to hear this. You need to talk to her OBGYN and other trained medical professionals. Never ever ever rely on a public Internet chat room/forum/group for medical advice! (+ info
Anybody heard about Remergent DNA skin repair products?

What DNA tests are available for general health assessment?
Can one get a report from somewhere analyzing health risks / predispositions to diseases / nutritional reccomendations / based on DNA research? I know there are specific tests regarding serious genetical disorders, but is there something that can be made to reflect the general health condition, a kind of genetic blueprint reading for what may go bad or is missing?
I guess you would have to talk to a genetic counselor. I know that there are tests (like you say) for many genetic diseases. (+ info
Should we collect DNA from newborn babies and create a national DNA databank.?
Newborn babies automatically have blood taken to be tested for
1. Phenylketonuria (enzyme deficiency)
2. Thyroid deficiency
3. Sickle cell disorder
4. Cystic fibrosis
and in March 2009 a new test for MCADD ( a condition which affects the way the body converts fat into energy)
Would it not be sensible to also store DNA information for future forensics???
What happen if DNA have deficiency in vitamin B12?
Your DNA will not have a deficiency in Vitamin B12 you will, the most common illness to surface will be a megaloblastic anemia (change in the shape of your Red Blood Cells) they will be larger and more rounded effecting the ability to combine with Oxygen. (Normal red cells are like a jelly donut with the center pressed in, increasing the surface area for O2 exchange). The number of Red Cells is also often but not always reduced. (+ info
Does anyone know where I can find info on the chromosones or dna strands that may be linked to mental illness?
For example I have seen pictures of my baby's chromosones which showed triploidy kareotype 69xxy. In looking in to such things I have learnt that a tiny mistake in the chromosone structure can cause mental disabilities such as down syndrome. I am studying psychology and reading about the genetics of inherited or likely to be passed down mental illnesses such as schizophrenic disorders, and ADHD which has like a 99percent chance of being passed from parent to child. If I looked at someone's chromosone structure who had mental illness such as Borderline personality disorder, depression etc would I be able to see a difference in the chromosones compared to a person who does not have mental illness, if so can anyone tell me where to find this information?
They're getting closer to finding the exact location of the genes for things like bipolar disorder and depression, but they're not there yet. However, the disorders are not exclusively genetic, so mapping the entire genome can only do so much. Things like Borderline Personality Disorder don't have much of a genetic component and are based more in early life events. (+ info
How prevalent were Iodine Deficiency Disorders in the US from 1900 to 1930?
Present generations of Americans have been spared the misery of the affliction, but 70 years ago, swellings on the throat, or goiters, were a common sight across the United States in thousands of people--as well as in pets and livestock. In some areas, 75 percent of teenage girls had goiters, and records from World War I reveal that goiter was the single most common reason for disqualification of young men from the Army. But the diligent efforts of medical researchers and the addition of iodine to the nation's table salt at no extra cost by the Morton Salt Company helped make iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) virtually disappear from the United States by 1951.
