Genetic Testing: Is It Accurate?

genetic testing

Genetic testing has provided a world of insight into ancestral history, medical history, and has unlocked information that millions of people worldwide would have never guessed about themselves. Along with providing familial history, genetic testing is also used to measure your susceptibility to disease through your genes. But how can you be sure that it is accurate?

The Validity of Genetic Testing

Genes can tell us what health conditions we may be susceptible to. This then allows you to take preventative steps in your health routine. Genetic testing is typically held as accurate if it accomplishes these three factors:

  1. How well genetic differences analyzed in the test
  2. How much of a risk does this variance or absence of a gene pose to the individual
  3. Can this knowledge be used to take preventative action against future disease or illness

It involves accurately analyzing your DNA to test for any variances, anomalies, or missing genes from your genetic makeup. This can provide insight into what diseases you may be more likely to contract and what lifestyle changes can help you take preventive measures against the onset of these diseases.
