Default HIT inherited? (allergies)


My mother had a heart attack several years ago. Long story short, we
discovered she had HIT (heparin induced thrombocytopenia(sp?)) and
probably had the attack due to a prior surgery.
At the time, I asked around and did a little reading; I couldn't find
anything on wether HIT is inheritable or not; and I forgot all about
it.

I still can't find anything that says wether it is inheritable or not.
I realise it might be more complicated than yes or no (like allergies),
but like I said I haven't found anything.

Thanks for any info, and I apologise if this is not the right newsgroup.

Default HIT inherited? (heparin)


heparin is a blood thinning agent formerly used to kill rats.

It's a medication that you have to consume to see the effects of, so, it
would not be inheritable. People are often put on heparin if they have
blood clot problems.
