5 The Disease is Inherited Families

So far scientists have identified genes that can increase the roughly 400 most prominent disease conditions, such as Parkinson's and cystic fibrosis or fatal condition caused by genetic mutations. Cystic fribrosis cause the formation of thick, sticky mucus in the lungs and various other parts.

However some diseases are caused not only by a single gene but rather due to a combination of several factors such as diet and lifestyle. Call it like high blood pressure, heart disease or schizophrenia.

Here are some of the diseases along with the percentage rate could be lowered risks associated mengkin history owned by a family member:

1. High blood pressure
Hypertension or high blood pressure is a state where a person experiences an increase in blood pressure above normal or chronic (long periods). Hypertension is often not realized because it is not symptomatic. To find the blood pressure measurements were taken. If not promptly treated, may increase the risk of stroke or heart attack.

Lowered risk: According to experts, if one of your parents have high blood pressure, your risk of getting this disease by 15 percent or even higher.

2. High cholesterol
In the same family, sometimes its members have high cholesterol levels. These circumstances in medicine is called Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH). FH is caused by changes in the gene where the fat is not metabolized properly in the blood and accumulate in the arteries. FH is one example of a dominant genetic trait, which means that a person needs only one abnormal gene for the condition.

Lowered risk: Dr Nigel Capps, of Britain said, if one of your parents have familial hypercholesterolemia, then you have a 50 percent risk of getting the disease.

3. Hypothyroidism
Hypothyroidism occurs when the body does not produce enough of the hormone thyroxine. Symptoms appear usually often feel fatigue and weight loss. The disease is seven times more likely to occur in women.

Reduced risk of: Dr. Mark Cohen, a consultant endocrinologist from Spire Bushey Hospital, Hertfordshire revealed, has a brother or a mother with thyroid (underactive), then you have a risk 20 times more likely to get it.

4. Bipolar disorder
Bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) is a condition that causes periods of depression and mania, is usually triggered by stress. Thought to be caused by chemical imbalances in the brain, and the influence of genetic factors.

Reduced risk: If there are parents who have the disease, the risk for each of their children are experiencing the same thing by 10-15 percent.

5. Diabetes type 2
Generally, the early symptoms of type 2 diabetes can not be detected. Risks of diabetes is quite high if a family, parents or relatives also have a history of the disease.

Reduced risk: If there is one parent with type 2 diabetes, disease risk was lowered by 15 percent. But if both parents have the condition, disease risk was lowered to 75 percent of their child. However, other factors such as obesity, exercise lazy and unhealthy eating can increase the risk.
