KSHB: Genetic testing reveals more than family ancestry

April 11, 2018

Genetic Testing has become more and more popular - and some at home kits are great but don't paint the full picture. 

“Some of these tests options that we can pursue online really doesn't give us the whole picture of what can be going on genetically,” Saint Luke’s Genetic Counselor Kallie Woods said. “We want to make sure that we are looking at as much as we can when it comes to your health history. Not only at genetic information but what else can we be doing for you; kind of going back to that if we need to be doing screening, even if we don't have a genetic reason for cancer in the family, let's go ahead and set you up with that.”
