Our studies have found that about 15% of healthy adults carry a serious health-related genetic risk. 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.
