Does the high risk found in genetic testing mean that I have developed a disease?
In genetic testing, high risk does not indicate that your current health condition is at risk. It means that you are more likely to develop a certain disease than those are with other gene types. Disease is caused by genetic and environmental factors and not by genetic factor alone. In other words, genetic test results cannot determine whether you have developed a disease or not.
Should I apply for genetic testing even if I do not currently have any health issues?
Do I only need to get a genetic test once?
Are issues in the family health history always caused by gene mutations?
What about the confidentiality of our personal information and test results?
How accurate are the genetic test results?
