Heart disease can be genetic, but with proper check ups and monitoring you don't have to develop the disease. Proper diet, exercise, not smoking, de-stressing and regular checkups should be able to ward it off for the most part. Watch cholesterol levels and high blood pressure, and try to keep them under control.


Type 1 Diabetes can be genetic and passed down from your parents. Being born with diabetes can be tough because children have a hard time managing their blood sugar levels. Proper monitoring and medication should be able to keep it under control. Diabetes 2 can appear later in life to to obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, but again, may be genetic.

High cholesterol is genetic and for some it may be higher than it should be. Medication should manage it for you.

4.High Blood Pressure

You may eat right, exercise and lead a stress free life, but still have high blood pressure. That's becomes sometimes it's genetic. The best you can do is manage it with medication, eating less salt, de-stressing and leading a healthy lifestyle. With proper management a person can lead a normal life.


Depression is clinical. It is not someone just being sad, it is due to lack of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is responsible for happy feelings, feeling of well being and feelings of contentment. People with depression suffer from receptors in the brain that remove the serotonin too quickly.


Anxiety can be genetic and passed down from one generation to another. Nervousness, worry, panic and anxiety can be mild to severe, and sometimes can affect people's lives. Treatments with medications and psychotherapy are often affective as alleviating any stresses in life. Anxiety sufferers can easily identify it in their children, and get them help right away.

Migraine headaches are often genetic, so chances are that if your mother or father have them, you may have them as well. They may not show up until later in life, or may be more mild or worse than your parents. Characterized by light sensitivity, excoriating pain and vomiting, these headaches can last from hours to days.


Eczema is passed down in your genes. Chances are one or both of you parents either had it when you were conceived, or were carrying it.
