If you are concerned about something you learned from your reports or want to explore a connection between your genetics and your medical history, you should contact your physician or other healthcare provider. Speaking with someone knowledgeable about clinical genetics is the best way to make sure that you have a clear understanding of what your data means for you personally. In some cases, your primary care physician may be the best place to start. In other cases, you might prefer to speak with a genetic counsellor or a medical geneticist -- health care professionals who specialize in hereditary conditions and who are specifically trained to help people understand their genetics in the context of personal and family history.
If you are interested in connecting with a genetic counsellor, here are some links to counselling resources by region:
- UK and Ireland: The British Society for Genetic Medicine
- The Netherlands: The Dutch Association of Genetic Counsellors

- Finland: Finnish Society of Medical Genetics
