    Default Musings on genetics

    Was pondering something on genetics and was interested to hear some thoughts of members. My basic question is whether people have found that their mpb has matched a pattern/rate experienced by an older family member (particularly where they only have one relative with mpb)? Or did they inherit a mix of traits from both sides? I'm just asking for general thoughts; obviously there is no definitive answer on how genes will work in a given case.

    To explain my position, I am just starting to diffuse thin at 22. My maternal grandfather seemed to go through something similar at the same time - progressing to an nw5 by about 30 - although I seem to be in better shape than he was at the same age. My dad and his dad still have full heads of hair.

    My gut feel is that I will most likely closely mirror my mom's dad loss rate and pattern. But I'd really like to hope my dad's genes might assist, at least a little.

    Thoughts?

    It's random. I got it from my dad.

    Funny thing is my mom's dad was bald and my dad's dad had full head of hair. My uncles/cousins on mother's side have excellent hair and I am NW-IV. Life sucks ..
