Genes are made up of DNA, the chemical database that contains instructions for the body. By examining one DNA via genetic testing, it can help reveal any change (mutation) in the genes that might cause illness or disease.
Genetic testing plays a very important role in determining the risk of developing certain diseases. Many genetic disorders can be managed better if they are detected early. Precision medicine makes use of gene screening techniques for disease prevention. Genes vary in individuals, various disease genes determine the chances of an individual to acquire a particular disease. Doctors use gene test results to know which diseases a patient has a high chance to acquire and give suggestions on how to minimize the chance, such as changing diet and lifestyle or even carry out treatments to prevent the disease from happening.
