    Benefits of Genetic Testing

    Benefits of Genetic Testing

    Genetic testing is a powerful tool that provides individuals with insight into their genetic makeup and potential health risks. By identifying genetic mutations or variations, individuals can take proactive steps to maintain their health and prevent the onset of certain conditions. Additionally, genetic testing can help families make informed decisions about reproductive planning and support earlier diagnosis and treatment of inherited conditions.
