You can be referred to the Medical Genetics and Genomics Program for many reasons. These may include:
  • Hereditary bleeding disorders (for example, hemophilia)
  • Hereditary blood clotting disorders (for example, Factor V Leiden)
  • Hereditary diseases of the skin, kidney, lung and eye
  • Hemochromatosis
  • Adults with Down syndrome
  • Other known genetic conditions, such as neurofibromatosis 

Depending upon the condition and your concerns, genetic testing can provide peace of mind and a course or proactive treatment and, in some cases, even prevention or delay of the onset. With the resources of the Division of Human Genetics at their fingertips, genetic counselors and physicians have access to the latest and most up-to-date tests, as well as clinical and translational research available throughout The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and the world.
