Common Genetic Disorders

A genetic disorder is prompted simply by an abnormality which is found in the DNA of an individual. These abnormalities of a DNA can vary from an insignificant transformation in one specific gene or subtraction or addition of a specific chromosome or a variety of chromosomes.

Marfan’s syndrome, sickle cell anemia, diabetes and Huntington disorders are some of the genetic diseases that are hereditary. In these syndromes, a transformed gene is transferred from the ancestors to the new generations and the future generations could also receive the gene that can cause the disorder. The connective tissues of a body are directly impacted from Marfan syndrome which is a hereditary disease. These connective tissues not only help the body to develop, but they also hold the body cell tissues together. In contrast, some other hereditary diseases are Down syndrome, Sickle Cell Anemia, Diabetes and Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML).

There is a wide range of health issues that posses a hereditary aspect. Several genetic disorders are biologically transferred from the parents to the children, while a few other genetic diseases are activated through simple mutation or transformation in a preexisting gene. These genetic diseases can be diagnosed through various tests and are fortunately curable.
