The Cause of Xlhed
The body contains many different types of genes. One of these is the EDA gene. This is the gene that helps to ensure that the proteins within the body are used properly. In order for the body to grow properly, it needs protein. Protein plays an important role in the way that hair and nails grow as well as good formation and growth of the teeth. It also is a big factor for healthy sweat glands. When the body is not able to process the proteins properly this affects these growth factors. With Xlhed it means that something has affected the EDA gene.
All of the potential symptoms that can come from Xlhed can lead to additional health problems. For example, if a child who has this genetic disorder cannot sweat properly then their body will overheat.
