DNA Testing

Genetic testing is an important health-care tool that can tell people a lot about their bodies.
These tests analyse a sample of a person's DNA and look for specific changes associated with different conditions.

Often, test results can help doctors diagnose and predict a person's risk for developing a disease. Other DNA tests can tell people about whether they are predisposed to certain traits.

Getting a DNA test can give you a window into your health.

Today, there are numerous genetic tests available to people at the clinical and consumer level. In general, they involve a mouth swab, hair sample, or a blood test to allow doctors, scientists, and individuals to look closely at a person's DNA for variations (mutations) that are linked to particular traits or conditions.

Diagnostic tests can confirm whether you have a hereditary disease like Huntington's disease, sickle cell anaemia, Marfan syndrome, and cystic fibrosis

Most of the time, doctors use genetic testing as a tool to help confirm a genetic disease diagnosis in patients who are experiencing specific symptoms.

Genetic tests can be used to identify 2,000 hereditary diseases and conditions. Some examples of common hereditary diseases that these tests might find include cystic fibrosis, familial hyperlipidaemia, and muscular dystrophy.

Diagnostic genetic tests look for specific changes in the DNA, in specific genes that are relatively well-proven to cause those genes not to work properly, and for the person to develop disease. They are exceptionally reliable and perfectly accurate.

One of the benefits of these types of genetic tests is that they allow doctors to detect hereditary diseases at every stage of life. In some cases, if doctors can identify the disease before symptoms progress to a severe level, they can help patients plan for managing the condition.

This is especially useful for conditions like familial hyperlipidaemia, which can result in premature heart attacks and stroke. Catching these types of diseases during their early stages (as in, before a first heart attack) means a patient will possibly have more options for treating the disease.

Pre-symptomatic genetic tests may tell you whether you are going to eventually develop a (hereditary) disease you do not actually have yet.

When a healthy person with no symptoms has a documented family history of a disease, such as diabetes, genetic tests can analyse specific markers in their genes that are related to that disease. Doctors may then use this information to predict whether that person is at risk of developing the condition.

One clear cut example is Huntington's disease. It is a single-gene disorder that causes dementia, and it usually starts when someone is in their 50s or 60s. If you have the mutation associated with that disease, you are 100% going to get it. (In the case of Huntington's disease, that mutation is an expansion of the region of DNA in a particular gene.)
