I've been recently researching this disease and this is what i got.
WHO CAN BE AFFECTED? 20,000 case a year in the u.s.
very rare,
commonly found that 1 in 27 Jews have TSD
HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN? caused by a genetic mutation in the hexa genes on chromosome 15, the case of a deletion or missing piece.
WHAT IS TSD? T.S.D. (Tay-Sachs disease), is a genetic disorder that results in the destruction of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.
SYMPTOMS OF T.S.D.? muscular weakness, problems w/ coronation, muscle contractions, and stiff muscles, whole body feels faint/wasted away, difficulty swallowing, hearing loss, seizures, vision loss, and impaired voice, decreased ability to move, crawl, turn over, and sit.
ANY CHANCE OF THE CHILD REPRODUCING? T.S.D. is a autosomal recessive genetic disorder meaning when both parents are carriers there is a 25% chance risk of giving birth to a child with T.S.D.
no chance of the victim giving birth because they will not live long enough to produce sperm cells, or egg. average age is 2-6
