Diseases that cause health problems in individuals, which are outside the rare disease areas in the health system, are included in this group.

Common diseases such as heart, kidney and lung diseases, mental disorders such as Alzheimer’s, obesity and diabetes, as well as other chromosomal diseases are also within the expertise of our genetics laboratory. Identifying the genetic origin of diseases allows the development of more effective treatments and personalized approaches. These conditions can be caused by one or more factors, including lifestyle, physical trauma, infection and genetics.

Environmental factors and lifestyle choices can contribute to these conditions, but genetics can influence a person’s risk by determining their susceptibility to the disease. For example, mutations detected in some genes are known to increase an individual’s susceptibility to various diseases, and some mutations are even known to be directly disease-causing. Finding the genetic source of common diseases can lead to the development of more effective treatments and personalized treatment approaches. Cystic Fibrosis (CF), alpha/beta thalassemia, SMA and FMF are examples of common diseases.
