Test will determine whether or not patients are carriers for one or more of a large number of these devastating genetic diseases
If they are a carrier for any diseases, testing their partner will identify if they are a carrier for the same disease
In most cases, even if they and their partner are carriers for a disease they will not have a mutation for the same disease, and they will gain the peace of mind that any children are not at increased risk
If both partners are carriers for the same genetic disease, additional steps can be taken to reduce the risk of passing a hereditary disease to your children.
Most insurance companies will make reimbursements for the test.
