Learning about your family's history of
genetic disorders can help you take charge of your health
A medical pedigree is a graphical representation of your family history that also includes health and disease information for each family member. Family members, relationships and health conditions are identified using standardized symbols.
Many common diseases are influenced by genetics and can run in families, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, as well as several genetic and rare diseases. Taking your family health history is important to identify which diseases you are at increased risk for in the future and to take appropriate steps to reduce those risks.
