Tonight, I want to ask .. if a schizophrenic person marries a normal person and has children, what percentage of those children will get schizophrenia too? thank you

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that causes sufferers to experience delusions, hallucinations, changes in behavior and chaotic thoughts. This condition makes it difficult for sufferers to distinguish between reality and their own thoughts.

The exact cause of this condition is still not known with certainty. But among several influencing factors are:

Imbalance of serotonin and dopamine hormones in the brain Abnormal brain structures History of mental disorders in the family Passed down from parents Lack of oxygen, nutrition and exposure to viruses while still in the womb Premature birth

As for your own question, the percentage of someone experiencing schizophrenia is:

General population: 1% of siblings have schizophrenia: 8% One parent has schizophrenia: 12% Fraternal or non-identical twins have schizophrenia: 14% Both parents have schizophrenia: 39% Identical twins have schizophrenia: 47%

But of course this is only a possibility, and that doesn't mean you should avoid schizophrenics for this reason. Because as we said, schizophrenia is still unknown the cause and even without a history, schizophrenia can still occur in 1% of the population. People with schizophrenia are just like other people with diseases. With good care by a psychiatrist and support from those closest to him, it is not impossible that he can carry out his daily life like a normal person. So, hopefully it answers your question.
