Asked in Marfan Sydrome
Are children as young as 4 and 5 too young to be tested for Marfan Syndrome as their father died of it when he was 32 years old?
If your father and brother both had Asperger's Syndrome does this mean any children you have will be born with it?
No, it does not mean that all of your children will be born with autism or Asperger's Syndrome. However, because the condition has a genetic component, it means that there is a greater likelihood that you have that gene, in which case you might pass it on to some of your children. You can get tested for the gene if you want so you know if there's a possibility of passing it on to your children

Asked in Marfan Sydrome
What genetic defect does marfan syndrome have?
Marfan syndrome is caused by a mutation in FBN1, which is fibrillin. There are over 600 known mutations that cause Marfan. It's interesting...most mutations are found in an individual family and no one else in the world. Only 12% of mutations overlap between unrelated people. Because of this, genetic testing is not beneficial unless a person 1) already meets many clinical criteria or 2) has an immediate family member who has tested positive for an FBN1 mutation (so that you know whether it's a disorder causing mutation or a benign mutation, like every person has thousands of). Marfan is autosomal dominant, so if a person has the mutation they have the disorder, and they have a 50% chance of passing it on to their offspring. There are other disorders that also are caused by FBN1 mutations, such as ectopia lentis and MASS Phenotype. Therefore, clinical criteria is still vital to make a firm diagnosis.

Asked in Pregnancy Tests, Down Syndrome
Can blood test concerning Down syndrome be wrong during pregnancy?
A lot of women experience the possibility of down's syndrome due to some tests performed during pregnancy. If your doctor says there is a possibility of down's syndrome than don't panic just yet but if your doctor has confirmed down's syndrome then I would start preparing yourself, as well as your husband. Your might consider having an amnio or CVS done for further testing. The way down's syndrome is diagnosed through a blood sample is the chromosomes are tested. If Down's Syndrome is present, the fetus will have 3 number 21 chromosomes instead of two. But from a blood test, just your blood is tested, although it can still be accurate, I would recommend having an amnio or CVS for a better prediction.
Asked in Mormonism
Where do Mormons believe they came from?
Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (or "Mormons") believe that they were born as spirit children of their Heavenly Father long before the earth was created. This pre-mortal existence was a time for learning and preparing for the opportunity to be born into mortal existence, be tested, and return to our Heavenly Father.
Doc said my son is having syndrome but his chromosom is tested normal?
Then It would have me believe that the type of syndrome your doctor is talking of isn't chromosonal or genetic. there are many types of syndromes out there and a HUGE range of degrees, even syndromes such as Downs syndrome poses a big difference in ranges... some downs syndrome children can not walk or talk whereas other are still able to go to mainstream school, so the best thing you can do, is find out exactly what type of syndrome your doctor says your baby has, and read up as much as you can to prepare yourself before the birth. but don't necessairly think yoru baby will have the worst case senario. My doctor told my mother that I was going to be mentally retarded and she should abort me. well 30 years on, Im married with 5 children studying child and adolesent psychology..... anyother words, doctors can be wrong.
