G6PD And Hypercute T Waves

G6PD And Hypercute T Waves

Following private DNA test RESULTs indicate am suffering from G6PD a and b.

How many know about G6PD and DNA mutations and its HEART manifestations.

As picture illustrates guess thats why am at doctors a lot SO question is do i ask my doctor about testing and treatment given my DNA results even tho they might think am neurotic and suffering from Health Anxiety.

Here is RESULTs information.

Glycogen Storage Disease Type 1a and Your Genes

Glycogen storage disease type 1a (GSD Type 1a) is a rare metabolic disorder that prevents the release of glucose, the body's main energy source, from glycogen stored in the liver.

About one out of every 100 people with Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry carries a particular mutation known as Arg83Cys. Almost every person with Ashkenazi Jewish heritage who has GSD Type 1a has two copies of this mutation. Arg83Cys is also found in about 30% of non-Ashkenazi Caucasians with GSD Type 1a.

The SNP reported by the 23andMe Personal Genome Service® for GSD Type 1a is the same as the Arg83Cys mutation. This is one of the mutations included in standard panels of genetic disease tests offered to pregnant women, as well as couples considering pregnancy, who have Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry.

(If you are not a carrier for this disease marker you could still carry one of the other mutations associated with GSD Type 1a).

If two parents are unaffected by GSD Type 1a, but are carriers of the Arg83Cys mutation, there is a 25% chance their child will be born with the disorder. There is a 50% chance that the child will be an unaffected carrier for GSD Type 1a.

  • With genetic testing I guess there will be more health anxiety, but the practical question that comes up is what can I do about it.

    The main thing seems to be to avoid any triggers of attacks.

    It seems to be associated with a reduction in cardiovascular risk
