June 2008 Mayo Clinic Women's HealthSource Highlights Shingles Vaccine for Pain Prevention, Tips to Avoid Antibiotic Resistant Infections, and Benefits of Broad Genetic Testing
Date:6/24/2008

iabetes, which are likely caused by a combination of genetic changes along with environmental influences.

Already, some private companies are providing DNA analysis to the public to assess disease risk. A few also offer genetic counseling and disease prevention and screening advice.

Experts caution that current tests don't identify all genetic variants that combine to predict vulnerability or resistance to a disease. And even then, an accurate test might not provide useful information. For example, most women have an estimated 10 percent lifetime risk of breast cancer. Some medical providers question the practicality of informing a woman her personal risk may be slightly higher. In most cases, screening and prevention options aren't changed.

Though not as exciting as new technology, a careful analysis of the extended family medical history can provide a form of genetic risk assessment that is just as useful as newer tests.
