Should You Recommend Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing for This Patient?

In recent years, the number of patients choosing to have direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing without involving their clinicians has increased substantially.  Here, 2 expert physicians—a general internist and a medical oncologist with genetics experience—discuss an approach to counseling a patient who is considering DTC testing to learn more about his ancestry and his risk for metabolic syndrome.

About Annals Beyond the Guidelines

From Annals of Internal Medicine (annals.org), Beyond the Guidelines is an educational feature based on recent guidelines. Each considers a patient (or patients) who "falls between the cracks" of available evidence and for whom the optimal clinical course in unclear. Presented at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Grand Rounds, each conference reviews the background evidence and experts then discuss the patient(s) and field audience questions. Videos of the interviews and conference, the slide presentation, and a CME/MOC activity accompany each module.
