My sister who spent her younger years in Stonehaven/

Aberdeen area also had ulcerative colitis.

I had heard this before about the area.

Gooday,

All the best with your research. I am trying to trace

the origins of a particular disease in my family. The

disease is ' ulcerative colitis'. It is related to an

inherited immune system disorder. The reason I am writing

to you is that recent research has shown that the

highest incidence is in Denmark and that the world's

second highest incidence is in Aberdeen.

Chrone's disease is also related. If you have any MERCER

or DONALDSON family members would you please let me know

as I may be able to cross-reference them with my ancesters.

Thank's for your time,

David (down under)

The medical term, ulcerative colitis caught my eye.

Was only half aware that that it is an inherited

immune system disorder. It does, unfortunately run in

our family, but unsure which strand of the family it

originates from - Moirs of Aberdeen or Mitchells of

Stonehaven or other even. Did not know it is related

to Chrones. This information probably doesn't help as

no Mercer or Donaldson in my line.

Hello,

Very interesting.

Did your family originate in this area?

How did your sister's life turn out (i.e with regard

to the course of the disease in particular)?

What time period are we talking about?

Are there any Mercer or Donaldson relatives in your

family?

It seems that a person can have the disease but it

seems to require some sort of stressfull situation

to bring it out. Recent research has shown (or seems

to indicate that people who have their appendix out

are less likely to develope the disease, though

"the jury is still out " on just why.

Have any other members of your family developed this

disease?

What country does your sister live in now?.

Regards,

David

Hello,

Thanks for your reply. The disorder seems to require

some sort of environmental factor to trigger it.

Possibly emotional stress although there are definate

parts of the gene sequence missing that are common to

all sufferers..One or more of these, as I understand

it, are the pattern for the liver to manufacture some

detoxifing enzymes. Recent research seems to show that,

if someone has their appendix removed, there is a much

less chance of developing colitis though the reason is

not known. It may be more statistical than medical.

Are there any Walker or Duncan ancesters in either line?
