Genetic tests to determine risk for monogenic diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis or Huntington’s Disease that are caused by a single gene mutation have been used for more than a decade. Risk prediction for complex diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease and Coronary Artery Disease is much more challenging as they involve hundreds to thousands of genetic variants together with environmental factors. To tackle this, polygenic risk scores come into play. Polygenic risk score, also known as genetic risk score, is the total number of genetic variants that an individual has in order to assess their heritable risk of developing a particular complex disease.
Genetic test results can be used to inform healthcare decisions and lifestyle changes to improve overall health, such as managing certain conditions or modifying diet and exercise habits.
Genetic testing results can be used to inform medical treatment or intervention by helping healthcare providers make more informed decisions about screening, monitoring, and treatment options.
Consumer genetic testing provides only partial information about your health. Other genetic and environmental factors, lifestyle choices, and family medical history also affect the likelihood of developing many disorders. Other limitations, including potential for false positives or false negatives, and limited understanding of the genetic basis of many conditions. That is why it is important to discuss all these factors with your clinicans or a genetic counselor.
Some genetic testing companies allow individuals to update their genetic test results as new research becomes available, but this is not always the case.
