Genetics and Heredity from 2008

  1. Two of my daughters were diagnosed with type 1 recently. A third had an A1c of 6.2, but is asymptomatic. Could she be in the early stages of diabetes? (22 Dec 2008)
  2. Because of the fragility of the Y chromosome, is a male fetus less likely then a female one to survive a diabetic pregnancy? (11 Dec 2008)
  3. Can the newborn baby of a hyperglycemic mother have hypoglycemia? What are the consequences for that baby? (12 Sep 2008)
  4. My one son was born with hypothyroidism. Another has type 1 and my husband has low testosterone levels. Are these conditions related/genetic? (24 Jun 2008)
  5. My niece has been complaining of tingling from her waist down. Should she be tested for a partial trisomy since there are genetic issues in our family? (11 May 2008)
  6. I read about a connection between blood glucose and likelihood of determining the sex of your unborn child. Does this mean type 1s are more likely to give birth to boys? (10 May 2008)
  7. Diagnosed last August, my teen son is unable to gain weight. What could be the problem? Should he have further tests? What are the risks for my older son? (3 Mar 2008)
  8. My girlfriend has type 1. What are the chances our children would have it, too? Is genetic mapping helpful for determining the chances that babies will have diabetes or not? (25 Feb 2008)
  9. Both my husband and his father have diabetes. Is there something I can do prior to conception or during my pregnancy to prevent our children from getting it? (28 Jan 2008)
