Genetic information provides a means to identify people who have an increased risk of certain conditions that have a strong genetic component, such as cancer, hypertension, mental deficiency, obesity, and mitochondrial/other rare genetic conditions.
Genetic services also provides evaluation, genetic counseling and risk management for various forms of birth defects, hearing loss, mental deficiency and learning disabilities and autism, which may be syndromic verses non-syndromic.
With the advent of the Human Genome Project, modern medicine has significantly changed our view on more specific and effective ways of managing patients in this era of Molecular Medicine.
