Diaz 1 Josh Diaz Mr. Krage Health 25 September 2018 What Genetic Disorders Are Imagine your family has a new baby, but the sibling comes out weak because of some of the genes in the family. This happens to many parents when there children get genetic disorders. The main parts about genetic disorders in this paper are what are they, how doctors test for it, what gene therapy is, what Genetic counseling is, what are genetically engineered drugs, and possible problems morally with this. Simply put genetic disorders are defects in genes that cannot be cured (Bronson,health notes). Doctors have come up with five ways to test the genes for disorders. The first way is when they are doing a newborn screening. They can do a diagnostic test for patients that they suspect have physical conditions from genetic disorders. The doctor can do a carrier test on the parents to assess the risk of getting a child with a genetic disorder. Finally doctors can do prenatal testing and detect changes during pregnancy of a fetus’s genes (“What Are the Types of Genetic Tests? .... NIH”). There is a way doctors try to fix genetic disorders.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
