Scientists have found factors that can affect the birth of twins in the family
Researchers believe that there is a familial genetic predisposition to having twins. As found by geneticists from the UK, multiple pregnancies may be associated with the IGF1 gene, more protein-IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor 1), which they encoded. This protein is involved in the regulation of growth, development and differentiation of cells and tissues of the body.
The authors had to analyze the weight data of almost two thousand babies — not twins.
They concluded that those whose mothers ever gave birth to twins who weighed more. If the child alone was born after the twins, on average he was at 226 grams heavier than the other babies. Born before twins is 134 grams. All mothers, to make twins, recorded high levels of IGF-1.
This protein is involved in fetal growth and thus affect the weight of the newborn. In addition, IGF-1 stimulates in women the production of eggs, which contributes to multiple pregnancies.
Another important factor which influences the birth of twins, is the mother’s diet.
According to the American doctor Gary Steinman, women in the diet which does not include dairy products, much less give birth to twins than women with similar genetics, but consume milk.
