AB Variant GM2-Gangliosidosis - A Bibliography and by Philip M. Parker

By Philip M. Parker

In March 2001, the nationwide Institutes of well-being issued the subsequent caution: "The variety of websites providing health-related assets grows each day. Many websites supply precious details, whereas others could have info that's unreliable or misleading." in addition, due to the swift elevate in Internet-based info, many hours should be wasted looking out, picking out, and printing. because merely the smallest fraction of data facing AB version GM2-Gangliosidosis is listed in se's, corresponding to www.google.com or others, a non-systematic method of net learn should be not just time eating, but in addition incomplete. This e-book was once created for doctors, scholars, and contributors of most of the people who are looking to behavior scientific study utilizing the main complicated instruments on hand and spending the smallest amount of time doing so.

Sample text

A genetic consultation is a health service that provides information and support to people who have, or may be at risk for, genetic disorders. During a consultation, a genetics professional meets with an individual or family to discuss genetic risks or to diagnose, confirm, or rule out a genetic condition. Genetics professionals include medical geneticists (doctors who specialize in genetics) and genetic counselors (certified healthcare workers with experience in medical genetics and counseling).

Knowing one’s family medical history allows a person to take steps to reduce his or her risk. For people at an increased risk of certain cancers, healthcare professionals may recommend more frequent screening (such as mammography or colonoscopy) starting at an earlier age. Healthcare providers may also encourage regular checkups or testing for people with a medical condition that runs in their family. Additionally, lifestyle changes such as adopting a healthier diet, getting regular exercise, and quitting smoking help many people lower their chances of developing heart disease and other common illnesses.

By changing a gene’s instructions for making a protein, a mutation can cause the protein to malfunction or to be missing entirely. When a mutation alters a protein that plays a critical role in the body, it can disrupt normal development or cause a medical condition. A condition caused by mutations in one or more genes is called a genetic disorder. In some cases, gene mutations are so severe that they prevent an embryo from surviving until birth. These changes occur in genes that are essential for development, and often disrupt the development of an embryo in its earliest stages.
