GENETIC
DIAGNOSTICS

Genetic testing is a medical laboratory test that examines your genes. Genes are DNA instructions that we all inherit from our parents. Different“ mistakes” in our genes, called mutations, can cause different diseases. Some of these diseases are rare, like cystic fibrosis or Huntington’s disease; others are common, like cancer. Genetic tests can be used to confirm the diagnosis or give you information about possible development of a disease.

Why and when you might considergenetic testing?

  • When you or your family members havesymptoms with a suspicionfor a genetic condition.
  • When you have afamily historyof a disease.
  • When you might haveincreased riskfor development of a disease.
  • When you mightpass on the genetic disease(mutation) to your offspring.
