Who might consider genetic carrier screening

With few exceptions, screening everyone for even the most common disorders isn't possible or practical. In the United States, several criteria must be met for widespread screening to be justified:

• A simple, accurate test is available

• The population — usually a certain ethnic or racial group — has a high incidence of carriers

• Reproductive or treatment options are available to people identified as carriers

You might consider undergoing genetic carrier screening if:

• You're part of a population group in which a genetic disease is known to be more common

• You or your partner has a family history of a particular health condition
