This is an example of a Down Syndrome Hereditary Medical Genogram. Genes may be found in every cell of the body. They are inherited from parents and are in charge of our growth from fertilized egg to fully developed adult. They supply the chemical information required to keep our bodies running smoothly. People with Down syndrome have the same genes as everyone else; they simply have 1% more. This is enough to disrupt the body's carefully adjusted equilibrium and cause the physical and intellectual features seen in persons with Down syndrome. A medical genogram, which is a sort of genogram that contains graphical representations of medical problems such as age, cause of death, and genetic risk, is used to assess illness risk. There are many choices in EdrawMax for your Hereditary Medical Genogram.
