An inherited disease is caused by a change or mutation in an individual’s DNA. Since genes are passed from parent to child, any changes in the DNA within a gene are also passed. Families at risk for such inherited diseases should consult a certified genetic counsellor. It may be necessary to check each parent's DNA to learn about some genetic inheritance patterns. A careful family pedigree (chart of members of the family) and history may help determine risks for certain problems.
