How we cover diagnosis and management of health conditions

Typically, Genetics Home Reference summaries do not include detailed information about the diagnosis, treatment, and management of particular health conditions. The understanding and availability of diagnostic and treatment approaches can change quickly, and we do not want to present outdated or incomplete information on these topics.

Instead, whenever possible, Genetics Home Reference offers links to other trusted resources for formal diagnostic criteria, treatment protocols, genetic testing options, clinical trials, and other information related to the diagnosis and management of specific diseases. These resources can be found in the “Diagnosis & Management Links” section on each health condition page.
