Irrespective of the outcome of the test results, genetic testing has numerous benefits.
- If the test result is positive, one can make informed decisions about the treatment options available.
- A negative test result rules out the need for undergoing a battery of tests and checkups.
- As these genetic disorders are heritable, the test results can actually help people decide if they want to have children.
- In case of newborn babies with any genetic anomaly, these tests are a boon as they help in identifying the genetic disorder and start early treatment.
