What Is Genetic / DNA Testing?
Benefits Of Doing A Genetic / DNA Test
Genetic testing plays a vital role in medical screening purposes, determining the risk of developing certain diseases as well as medical treatment. Different types of genetic testing are done for different reasons:
1) Diagnostic Testing
2) Predictive Testing
3) Carrier Testing
If you have a family history of a genetic disorder — such as sickle cell anemia or cystic fibrosis, you may choose to get a genetic test done before having children. A carrier screening test can detect genes associated with a wide variety of genetic diseases and mutations and can identify if you and your partner are carriers for the same conditions.
