My daughter was just diagnosed with Factor V Leiden, A1298C+, and Homocysteine Cardiovascular 5.7. She is pregnant. The tests showed that she inherited it from ONE parent --which has to be me.
I am finding it difficult to find anything significant on these.
Does anyone else have these, or know how serious they are, or what a person can do about it?
She has been referred to a High Risk Obstetrician.
I have had a blood clot, a MIA stroke, one likely heart attack at age 28, a cancer suspician in breast just last year -- all of which seem to go with these genetic mutations.
Please steer me in an informative direction! Thanks!
