Are mental disorders (like OCD, depression, anxiety) hereditary? If it can be hereditary, can it be treated once and for all without recurrences.

Nobody knows for sure if the conditions you mention are genetically hereditary. Some say they are, others claim you learn a certain way to handle life from your parents or relatives. Since human beings are pretty complex creatures, my best guess is that the truth lies somewhere in between. That you may inherit a certain sensitivity or an inclination to develop anxiety, depression and/or OCD, but if you get the right upbringing, the symptoms may never appear or be less severe than if you have a really bad childhood.

Children learn how to act and react under pressure from their parents. If the parents are prone to panicking or giving up when things get rough, it's likely that their kids copy their behaviour. It's also a very frightening experience for a kid when their parents flip, which in itself can lead to mental disorders.

As for psychosis and schizophrenia, scientists believe they're hereditary to some extent, but of course not 100%.

Most mental disorders can be successfully treated but if and when life changes, certain symptoms may recur, particularly under stress, like if a child or relative dies, you lose your job or get seriously ill etc. If you suffer from these disorders, you can learn effective ways of coping with the symptoms and may not need treatment more than once. Others may have to try different methods before they find what's working for them.

Most people have one or a few hangups, like phobias. The most common explanation is that the real daredevils, who weren't afraid of anything, didn't live long enough to procreate. As long as you're able to control your fear and don't let it limit your life, things are cool.   (+ info)

Is Down's Syndrome hereditary, and what are the increased risks of it if having a child after 30?

I am aware that 1 in 733 live births is the average statistic.

Please include your source of information. Thanks!

②In mothers younger than 30, Down syndrome occurs in about 1 in 1500 births. In mothers 30 to 35 years old, the incidence doubles to 1 in 750 births. Im mothers over 45, the risk is as high as 1 in 16 births. Older mothers are more likely to have a baby with Down syndrome because all the eggs a female will ever produce are present in her ovaries when she's born, unlike males who produce new sperm throughout adult life. As a female ages, her eggs can accumulate an increasing amount of damage. Because of this risk, a pregnant woman over the age of 35 may be advised to undergo prenatal testing that includes fetal karyotyping

What is the percentage of me having a down syndrome baby if my husbands sister had one? Is it hereditary?

It can be. There is a test you can have at 10 weeks of pregnancy to find out if the baby has DS. Its called Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or you can have an amoniocentisis which is done the same way. Don't chance it,go have genetic testing done beforehand and get tested when you find out you are pregnant. Visit the link below for info about the test.  (+ info)

Has anyone had Nephrotic Syndrome, is it hereditary, What causes it?

My daughter has had it, I hear only boys get it, and it's not hereditary, but when I look back on my family records I see something that is described as similar to my daughters condition that they have died from. So can this be hereditary? I'm figuring that it is passed on from generation to generation, I just want to know more about it and if anyone has had it, and if you know of hereditary possiblites.

Nephrotic syndrome is urinary excretion of > 3 g of protein/day due to glomerular disease. It is more common in children and has both primary and secondary causes. Diagnosis is by measurement of a spot urine protein/creatinine ratio or a 24-h urinary protein; underlying causes are diagnosed based on history, physical examination, and renal biopsy. Treatment and prognosis vary by cause.

my under-eye bags are unfortunately hereditary and I don't want to have to apply all this makeup in the morning to hide them. could I just do concealer and powder? or do I absolutely have to take the extra time? help!

no! all you need is lotion concealer and powder. make sure the concealer is one shade lighter than your skin tone. apply lotion under your eyes. dab the concealer under your eyes, focusing on the inner corner, blending out wards. after you all blended apply powder to your face and your good to go.


1.) you dont want to "erase" the dark circles because you will look fake. you just want to make the circles less noticleble.

2.) you can put teabags on your eyes the night before to reduce puffyness

How can I get rid of hereditary acne?

I'm pretty sure my acne is hereditary because my dad also has really bad acne. How can I get rid of it? I know everyone's acne is different and different things work for different people, but what helped you the most?

Get good nutrition. These top five nutrients have been shown to have a very positive effect on your skin and in treating acne. These nutrients, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, selenium and chromium, can pack a powerful punch in your acne war.

Zinc - Zinc is the Acne stopper. It works in several ways to both treat acne and prevent it. It helps the body regulate certain hormones which prevents acne, but it also helps with wound healing, tissue regeneration and boosting the body's immune system.Most people in the United States actually have a marginal zinc deficiency, but you can get zinc from many of your favorite foods, such as seeds, nuts, legumes and whole grains.

Vitamin A - Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that helps you have beautiful, healthy hair and skin. You can find vitamin A from fruits and vegetables. Dark green vegetables and deep yellow vegetables as fruits give you a good dose of vitamin A by providing carotenes. Oatmeal is a good source of vitamin A, as well as cantaloupe, honeydew melon, broccoli, spinach and sweet potato. Liver contains a megadosis: watch out, vitamin A is stored in the body and you can actually get vitamin A poisoning.

Vitamin E - Vitamin E helps to normalize decreased levels of antioxidant enzymes. This is often prevalent in male acne patients, but vitamin E has proven beneficial to both male and female acne sufferers. Almonds, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, spinach, broccoli and mango are all great sources of vitamin E.Even a snack as simple as ¼ to ½ cups of raw nuts and seeds can help your skin become clearer and healthier.

Selenium - Selenium works much like vitamin E in that it also helps to normalize decreased levels of antioxidant enzymes. Selenium can be found in foods such as vegetables, meats and bread. Some nuts, such as Brazil nuts and walnuts are also rich in selenium. You can also supplement your diet with selenium, taking 100 to 200 micrograms per day. However, 3 ½ ounces of beef has 35 micrograms of selenium and 3 ounces of tuna has 63. Brazil nuts, though, are the winner with 544 micrograms of selenium per ounce.

Good Luck...  (+ info)
