Discussion of treatments for Genetic Disease:

People seek genetic counseling to help them make better decisions about their lives and families. Because genetic counselors understand how genetic disorders are passed on through families, they can help couples estimate the risks of having children with genetic diseases. They can also tell parents about tests to determine if people are carrying certain altered genes, tests for newborns who may have inherited certain altered genes, and tests that can be done in early pregnancy to determine if a fetus either carries an altered copy of a gene or is affected with a disorder. The information derived from all these studies can be valuable aids in family planning.

Your health care team can help you find genetic counseling if you wish to better understand your disease or risk of disease. (Source: excerpt from Questions and Answers about Heritable Disorders of Connective Tissue: NIAMS)
