According to a recent estimate, seven thousand genetic counsellors in 28 different countries are offering their services in the field of medical genetics.4 Now-a-days, in the era of advance genomics, the genetic counseling services became more specialized as cancer genetics, cardiogenetics, neurogenetics, infertility genetics and other speciality areas.

"This study has significant implications for treatment of diabetes and also other autoimmune diseases," said Ostrov, associate professor at the University of Florida College of Medicine's Center for NeuroGenetics. "This study suggests that the same approach may be adapted to prevent autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, coeliac disease, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus and others."
