Genetic Disorders Overview

A genetic disorder is a genetic problem caused by one or more abnormalities formed in the genome. Most genetic disorders are quite rare and affect one person in every several thousands or millions.[citation needed] Genetic disorders may be hereditary, meaning that they are passed down from the parents' genes. In other genetic disorders, defects may be caused by new mutations or changes to the DNA. In such cases, the defect will only be passed down if it occurs in the germline....

20 years

Im turning 20 on 2/9 and i have been taking orfadin since i was 6 months old.because i have been diagnosed with tyrosinemia. I was supposed to get a liver transplant but this new mediction saved me from it. I take 48mg twice a day. Doctor prescribed but i feel it is too much. Thoughts? ## I think that in such a situation, with such a dangerous medical issue, that your best and safest bet is to follow your doctor's instructions, because they are going to know more than anyone else. Learn more Orfadin details here. If they've kept you from needing a transplant for this long, I'd say they're doing pretty well, so far. And congratulations to you on such and I hope you have a fantastic 20th birthday. Is there anything else I can help with? ## DO YOU NEED A PRESCRIPTION FOR NI...

nitisinone availablity in India

my son is suffering in tyrosinemia type-1st. Treatment is only capsule orfadin (salt, nitisinone) if any body have any information related how i can find this medicen in india or address of any authorized medicare in india, please let me know {edited for privacy}. ## Hi Rouf, Sorry to hear about the condition your son is in. I don't know what the laws are like over in India regarding Orfadin (Nitisinone) being available over-the-counter or via prescription-only (as I am here in the US where it is classified as a prescription drug). But it sounds to me like it may be a good idea to contact the doctor who originally diagnosed him with this ailment and see if he/she knows where to find the medication that was recommended for treating it. You could also just walk into any pharmacy there...

Methylene Blue Urolene TauRx Rember

Urolene Blue pills may no longer be made. If you can get the I.V. form of methylene Blue, it should distill out using a simple water purifying distiller (along with a touch of salt crystals in the MB, perhaps). Dump the pale blue water that comes out, and scrape the residue inside the distiller --- that's the MB. In this solid form it is weird looking stuff. Kind of a golden green shiny material ... has a Formica quality to it. If powder is required, grind it up with a mortar and pestle. If you do all this in a room (like a kitchen) that you've sprayed with the correct disinfectant (say alcohol and Lysol) and first sterilize all the items that you use, then it should still be pharmaceutical-ish grade. No worse, I suspect, than baking cookies. This is expensive, since the yield f...

It's suppose to be 400 mg guaifensin and 20mg dextromehorphan. However, in the save jar I found other pills with TCL 280 that have also been identified as guaifensin... go figure! ## @Lori, The closest match I can find based on the description provided, is Kalydeco (ivacaftor) 150 mg. Kalydeco is used in the treatment of cystic fibrosis and belongs to the drug class CFTR potentiators. It is a blue capsule/oval shape pill with V 150 on one side and nothing on the other. Maybe the pill you have is the same medication, just manufactured by a d...
