Genetic Testing/DNA Testing

Nowadays, people are getting more conscious about their health, thus moving their focus towards genetic testing. Also known as DNA testing, this test is beneficial for those who are having a history of any genetic disorder in their family.

At present, more than 77,000 types of genetic tests are available in the market, and yet many more to add to the list.

In medical terms, genetic testing or DNA test is done for the following reasons:

  • To diagnose various genetic disorders
  • Gather information helpful in creating medical treatments for those suffering from any chronic illness
  • Predict the risk factor in certain conditions

As we all know, that during pregnancy our body undergoes various changes inside and outside both. So, it is advisable to undergo genetic testing during pregnancy. It will help the parent to take timely action if any genetic abnormality is diagnosed.

We all know that there are two sides to the coin. The same is the case with genetic testing, too. Before undergoing the test, one must overview the genetic testing pros and cons. Just listing the few:


  • If a medical practitioner is aware of the disease history, it would be easier for him to start the treatment
