Can anybody give me a good reason on why it is hereditary?


I just want to know why diabetes is hereditary!
----------

Well, it isn't strictly hereditary. Kids of diabetics are at higher risk to develop it, too, but most of them will NOT get diabetes.

Diabetes type 1 is caused by an immunological cross-reaction between pancreas islet beta cells (the cells that secrete insulin) and certain (Coxsackie) viruses. The likelihood of such a cross-reaction occurring is related to certain cell surface (HLA) proteins that are indeed inherited.

Diabetes type 2 seems to depend on lots of different factors, many of which may be individually inherited.  (+ info)

Hereditary Bags Under My Eyes: How do I get rid of them?


Ah, it seems I got lovely puffy bags under my eyes when I swam in the gene pool. I've had them as long as I can remember, even as a little kid. But what is the solution to get rid of them? I get at least 8-9 hours of sleep every night. I have used concealer, but it doesn't do much. I have very pale skin, and I find them quite noticeable. I would rather not use any type of surgery, I'm getting the shivers just thinking of that. Any home remedies, that are (preferably) painless?
No no no, they're not dark and puffy. Just puffy. My dad's side. Gee, thanks dad...
Heh, no lasers. I shudder at the thought of it. =O What if they missed or something and got my eye?!

Are spectrum disorders such as Autism or Aspergers hereditary?


My mom had issues, my brother did, and I did, and to me reading, it sounds a lot like Aspergers. My oldest son was diagnosed with Autism.
Could it be hereditary possibly?
I had a fear of social interaction and really didn't want to interact when I was youngr. Still the same. I have a high iq, but sometimes have trouble putting words together to express what I want to say, but don't really have a problem writing them.
I see these things in my son as well.
----------

Everyone said it was hereditary, but that's only half of it. It can be hereditary, it can also be the result of environmental factors, or non-genetic biological factors, such as the rate of autism in children diagnosed with an arnold chiari malformation (both types) but I would say that if you have a strong history of this in your family, then you have your answer. Good luck!  (+ info)

Does anyone have experience with a chlld with Hereditary Angioedema?


My grandaugter was just diagnosed with Hereditary Angioedema. She's only seven. Anyone have experience with this disease?
----------

Hi, i have a lot of family members with HAE including myself & there isnt anything they can actually do for kids that i know of, my nephew was put on danazol when he about 8 but his mother took him off it not long after because she didnt like the side affects (and there are many!). your grand daughter should be seeing a specialist at a childrens hospital for this illness, i was diagnosed with HAE when i was 8 and im now 31 & on danazol. its a terrible painful illness & i understand how your grand daughter feels when she's sick.
feel free to contact me anytime :)
Love Melanie xx  (+ info)
