The Diabetes-Obesity panel is designed for individuals with a personal and/or family history of monogenic diabetes or obesity-related disorders to help establish or confirm a diagnosis, assess risks, and/or guide management. Medical intervention may include lifestyle changes in diet and exercise, hormone replacement, and bariatric surgery. Family members can also be tested to help define their risk.
Genetic testing is the process of taking a sample of a person’s DNA to look for changes that could cause inherited heart disease. Important changes in genes are called pathogenic mutations. The term “pathogenic” means disease-causing.
Genetic testing can be used to:
Clarify the diagnosis in a person who has, or is suspected to have, diabetes and/or obesity
Identify the cause of diabetes and/or obesity in a family
Predict which family members are at-risk to develop diabetes and/or obesity
Your patient's health is your most important asset. You should entrust it only to the best professionals.
Due to our research findings and technology, we are able to provide timely reports of genetic and specialty testing.
All scientists and personnel at Genetics Institute of America have been trained thoroughly to assist in any situation.
Our panels are designed for steady progress, with every phase promptly implemented.
