Genetics in Pediatrics

Fortunately, most of the children are born healthy with no medical problems or birth defects. However, some children are born with variations in body structure, brain development and body chemistry that can cause problems with health, development and social interaction. The Pediatric geneticists are trained to identify the causes and natural history of these disorders. They may suggest tests and treatments which can help in understanding and caring for your child’s condition. Pediatric geneticists help families and can also explain whether some conditions are from hereditary (coming from the genes) or any other reasons. According to the survey, it has been noticed that most of the childhood deaths are attributed to genetic disorders rather than non-genetic factors. Geneticists are therefore concentrating more on the cause and onset. In fact, they are keeping track of the environmental factors as well as the combined factors that might lead to the disease. Thus, prenatal genetic counseling or karyotyping is necessary for the continuation of the healthy legacy of family.
