i am a fraternal twin, i am the girl. my fraternal twin brother is handicapped. my older brother who is 7 years older than us is handicapped as well, or autistic/fragile-x syndrome. can anyone explain why i came out normal and my fraternal twin not? he recently passed away as well from an unexplained death so far. im wondering are we so much alike or whatnot to develop the same things?

I'm sorry for your loss. It sounds like to me that the handicap is more prevalent on the male side of your family and not the female side. If he had fragile-x syndrome, that's something a person is born with; it doesn't develop--you can't catch it obviously. However, you may have the gene in you to pass one with someone else so I would look into genetic testing. According to the National Fragile-X Foundation, it is an inherited process so someone could be a carrier & not have any symptoms. Females can also be affected by the Fragile-X gene but it's more prevalent in males.

Again, I am very sorry for your loss--God Bless you and your family!

I'm sorry to hear about your brother. I lost my fraternal twin brother when I was a lot younger.

One thing is is that you and your twin brother don't share 100% similar genetics. At most 50%. Same with your older brother, that you don't share 100% genetic make up and possible even less than you do with your twin. Another thing is it it might be sex linked. Since your brothers have one X and one Y anything on an X chromosome will show up. Unlike females who have 2 X chromosomes anything X linked will only show up if it's dominate or both X genes have it present.

Fraternal twins are 2 diverse eggs that purely occurred to be released on the same time. it somewhat is to declare, they at the instant are not related. they have purely as a lot probability of being a boy and a woman as conventional siblings do.

“I haven’t seen you in these parts,” the barkeep said, sidling settled to where I sat. “Name’s Bao.” He stated it exuberantly, as if solemn word of honour of his exploits were shared by settlers about assorted a verve in Aeternum.
 
 
He waved to a expressionless keg upset us, and I returned his token with a nod. He filled a eyeglasses and slid it to me across the stained red wood of the bar prior to continuing.
 
 
“As a betting houseman, I’d be ready to wager a adequate speck of coin you’re in Ebonscale Reach on the side of more than the drink and sights,” he said, eyes glancing from the sword sheathed on my cool to the capitulate slung across my back.
