V617F Mutation In The JAK2 Gene, What Diseases And Whether It Can Be Cured?
Good afternoon Doc ..
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Gene mutation is a change in the smallest components that make up the body, which determines the shape of the nose, the location of the eyes, the work of the heart, and so forth. Unlike in the movies, gene mutations in the human body are often detrimental.
JAK2 V617F mutations can result in many things and are found in several conditions, including:
The condition of polycythemia vera, when the spinal cord that does function produces red blood cells, overproduces it. The condition for essential thrombocytosis, or a condition in which a large number of pieces of blood are myelofibrosis condition, a type of blood cancer Budd-Chiari Syndrome, or a blockage of the arteries of the liver
Nobody knows why this condition occurs, but usually the influence of heredity plays a role in increasing risk factors. Need further examination to be able to find out what is the real condition of your sister and only doctors who treat it and know the condition directly that can answer it as a whole, including whether it can be cured or not, deadly or not, and how to handle it. But for infectious or not, any disease caused by mutations in genes is not contagious, it is different if it is caused by bacteria or viruses.
You also need to pay attention, if your sister feels closed, you should try to support it from the 'outside' first. If your younger sibling is more than 18 years old, he has the right to keep his medical conditions from other people including his family if he so wishes and the doctor is not obliged to convey to his family if prohibited by the patient himself.
So we suggest that you should talk carefully to your sister, why the reasons are not open to the family, what worries and fears she has, and tell her that you and the rest of her family members will be willing to go through the process with you. Try to convince him in your own way, and give him time. He may also now want to be alone to establish his heart. However, don't be in a hurry and don't be in a hurry, and reassure your sister that she is not alone. So, hopefully answering your question.
