What can you find out from your genetic test?
MARCH 2017 – You can get to know what kind of mutations you carry and what kind of diseases you have a risk for. Basically, there are two kinds of diseases. The first one is called a multifactorial disease, where genetic components and environmental factors play significant roles together in developing a risk. The risk shows how much chance you have for getting the disease later in your life. The second one is called monogenic disorders. In their case, one change in the code of the DNA leads to the disease. It’s deterministic.
