Based on some evaluations of genetic risk, about 1 in 20 people carry a serious health-related genetic risk, but most of us don’t know it. Adults who learn that they have risk-related genetic changes can partner with their healthcare provider to seek early care, regular monitoring, and possibly initiate an early intervention to prevent the onset of disease. Additionally, lifestyle changes may be considered as a result of genetic test results.
