What is Genetic Counseling?

What is Genetic Counseling? | Online Genetic Counseling for All DNA Tests

Genetic counseling is a medical service that helps individuals make sense of their DNA test results. It can help people learn how their genes may impact their health. The service is carried out by genetic counselors who are trained in both genetics and counseling. The counselors typically work in a clinical setting such as a hospital or doctors office and may counsel patients on a range of health topics such as risks of diseases based on your genetics and family history.

Why is Genetic Counseling Useful?

Most of us are not trained in genetics and so we often need help to make sense of the immense amount of data we receive from DNA testing. That is exactly what a genetic counselor can help you do. Since counselors are trained in genetics, they will not only help you understand the data, but they can also help you make informed health decisions. Whether you are just curious about your genetics or looking to provide helpful information to your doctor, a counselor can help increase your comprehension and ability to discuss your DNA results in an educated and informed way.
