Science has developed so far and with the help of available techniques and procedures, it has become quite easy to knock down many disease conditions and other congenital conditions occurring in human lives. Techniques developed till now have really worked well in improving lives. There are many techniques that are being into developing stage and enthusiasts are working hard on it to make it possible to pin down every possible disease and other ailment conditions. One such congenital condition is called, cleft lip and cleft palate. It affects 1 in every 600 children born worldwide (1) and is one of the most commonly occurred congenital deformities. It has been explained and shown the particular gene playing role in sole or in association with other factors playing role in the formation of non-syndromic cleft lip and/or cleft palate. Several genes has been found and sequenced for confirmation and found playing role in formation of different forms of cleft lip and/or cleft format.
It’s not wrong to comment as technology has changed the peoples’ life drastically and people are more dependent on gadgets. The same is ruling the health of the human since morning to night when they keep their gadgets on rest for few hours. But this does not solves the problems human life is suffering with and many of them are entitled to live a life full of health issues and other ailments that people are fully tangled into.
But, people should know that there could be high risks for them to get hooked to some deadly health issues, if they continue to live their life without giving a second thought for some workout. Awareness is must for such folks who have no source of information to gain about their family history for disease and other conditions that is passing through generation to generation in their family. There are thousands of hereditary conditions, chromosomal aberrations, syndrome errors, single nucleotide polymorphisms and other relevant mutations that are leading to new conditions every case.
There are advanced techniques and imaging technology advancing towards the great success for detecting many of the conditions within human body and to the most extent it has become feasible for people to detect the cause and then further efforts can be made on finding solution for the same
There is one deformity called cleft lip and cleft palate with or without syndromes that I am concentrating to understand in terms of its genetic role. There are several genes that have been pooled in lists of responsible for such deformities and mutations that are causing such deformities. Still it has not been a full success towards finding the real cause in many cases as people have cited in their research articles. Since causes could be many and it again varies as per the family history, their diet pattern, their consumption level of alcohol, tobacco and other responsible drugs that could affect the formation of fetus during embryogenesis.
This is not true to comment that there are many deformities and other congenital birth deformities and other related health issues that are affecting every second human. And the life expectancy has decreased to hell down. But many of us are able to manage surviving on medicines. It’s true that earlier food used to be our fuel for life, while now medicines has excelled to be the fuel for many in fighting against viruses, infections, diseases, strokes and many other ailments that are knuckling under from a healthy life to an unhealthy way of life.
As per today’s trend people are more inclined and of course dependent in using modern techniques for examining, diagnosing and treating the cause. It takes very less time in diagnosing and giving the appropriate treatments for the cause. But not many problems get over by such treatments. Sometime, it stands as the end of the problem; sometimes it invites other package of problems, sometimes gives chances for further problems in future. So, it becomes very important for respective cases to be examined and treated with proper knowledge and information in terms of making them aware of the complications in future. There are hereditary diseases and it might or might not pass to the next generations, but one never knows what could be the result. So, it is better for those who know that some of the hereditary problems could appear in them, so it’s good to get counseled and be at the safer side.
Important: There is one deformity called “congenital birth deformity of cleft lip and cleft palate”. There are around 35,000 children born with this deformity every year in India only. It varies geographically and environmentally too. So, treating them is one of the best parts that our medical people can render services to such people. But educating them and letting them know the chances of getting second child again with cleft deformity with or without some associated syndromes is always there. So, they should take it serious and should go through all necessary genetic counseling and other nutritional counseling if they are planning for the second child in their family. Because it could be, that the “gene” is there in either of the parents and can again dominate or sometimes can simply lie without dominating and would of course would never prevail to another shock to the parents.
There are ways some hereditary diseases and conditions can be avoided if taken proper tips and knowledge from respective folks working in the field of medicines and research and counselors and surgeons.
