Clinical Genetics and Genetic Counseling

Clinical Genetics and Genetic Counseling

Clinical Genetics is the medical specialty concerned with the medical elements of Genetic Services provided to individuals and families. It provides to individuals and doctors with the correct use of the information obtained from the different genetic analysis studies. In this sense, it is a genomic medicine service unlike the genetic analysis services offered by laboratories. As a medical service we provide counseling with the aim of designing and applying individualized supportive strategies starting from the genomic analysis.

When you visit to a geneticist, you receive complete and detailed information about your genome together with an appropriate genetic counselling based on those results, but rarely you receive medical-practical guidance or treatment guidelines.

When you go to a doctor, whether a generalist or a specialist, you receive a clinical assessment (clinical diagnosis) and treatment guidelines based on your clinical status, which rarely is based on your particular genomic hallmarks.

What is the difference when you come to us?
At Clinica’s Diagonal Clinical Genetics and Genetic Counselling Unit, we combine the experience of both sides (medical and geneticist) and in this way, in addition to the clinical criteria, we recommend actions that also take into account the distinctive hallmarks present in your genome.

We perform medical action to improve accuracy, efficacy and safety in diagnosis and treatments of any disease or health condition at any age. Always under the guidelines provided by genomic medicine: the possibility of increasing objectivity as a guarantee of total personalization of recommendations (from diet and habits, to medications or suitability or contraindication in the use of natural supplements).

We act on 2 levels:
1) At the level of Health Promotion for healthy people (preventive programs)
2) At the level of Disease Prevention in individuals with a personal or family history of specific health conditions

Our preventive programs are based on a medical protocol based on a genetic analysis: AGE MANGENEMT/ WOMAN’S HEALTH/ EXECUTIVE/ BABY/ ONCO/ REPRODNA/ NEUROPROGRAM/ FIBROMIALGEN/ NUTRIGENOMIC

Who is that for?
