What are 3 diseases/abnormalities caused by high cholestrol?


There are many. Arteriosclersis, also known as hardening of the arteries, high blood pressure, myocardio infarction, also known as heart attack, pulmonary embolism from blood clot in the lungs, stroke from blood clot in the brain, and many more.

These are just a few reasons why it is wise to have your cholesterol checked and treated if it is too high. Diet is the best treatment and is effective for many people, but some people do require medication as their body makes too much cholesterol even if they do not eat any.  (+ info)

I would like to know if my child will be left handed and whether the kid will inherit any hereditary diseases.


I was left handed. My dad had changed me to use my right hand and now I use my right hand. In my family, me and my father's younger brother are the only people who got the left handed tendency. My uncle's (left handed) kids are all right handed from birth. My mom and dad are both right handed. My husband's family is also right handed.

About hereditary diseases, in my side , my dad's family doesnt have any particular hereditary disease, my mom's side, my grandmom is diabetic. My husband's side, his mom was diabetic and dad has triglyceride. My husband has asthma lightly. I am not a mother yet. But just wanted to know everything in advance.

My Goodness !
Why would it matter if you had a child who was left handed ?
There seem to be several auto immune diseases in your family and there is no way to know ahead of time how healthy your future child will be.
You could go for genetic counseling but I don't see the reason.
You will do whatever you have to do for your child regardless of any ailments he/she has.
I wish you the best.  (+ info)

Interesting or strange hereditary diseases?


Does anyone know of any strange/interesting hereditary diseases and a source if possible?
----------

'Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an inborn error of metabolism that is detectable during the first days of life with appropriate blood testing (e.g., during routine neonatal screening). PKU is characterized by absence or deficiency of an enzyme (phenylalanine hydroxylase) that is responsible for processing the essential amino acid phenylalanine. (Amino acids, the chemical building blocks of proteins, are essential for proper growth and development.) With normal enzymatic activity, phenylalanine is converted to another amino acid (tyrosine), which is then utilized by the body. However, when the phenylalanine hydroxylase enzyme is absent or deficient, phenylalanine abnormally accumulates in the blood and is toxic to brain tissue.'

NORD's Rare Disease Database (link) is THE clearinghouse on rare diseas and conditions.

It is a great source of information for those so inclined. : )

screening for hereditary genetic diseases?


What steps should I take to screen for rare genetic diseases to find out wether or not they run in my family.I want to do this before I have a child and not get surprised after nine months.
----------

I had to get genetic testing because I have a trait that could have affected my shildren. I also had to get genetic counseling. What you have to do is ask your doctor for a simple blood test that can find any possible genetic traits. If they find something then you can be referred to genetic counseling. It's scary. I have a trait called Mediterranean Thalyssemia. They told me that if my spouse had the trait there would be a one in four chance that the baby could come out with a severe blood disorder (luckily my hubby did not have the trait. They ask you about your family history and everything.  (+ info)
