FD is an abbreviation for Familial Dysautonomia, a rare, fatal, genetic, neurologic disease present at birth. Kids with FD live in very unstable bodies.  All their internal functions are unpredictable. They are prone to wide swings in blood pressure and heart rate, rapid decline of oxygenation and life-threatening autonomic crisis. The children who are susceptible to this disease are the product of parents who are both from an Ashkenazi Jewish background.
