Fatal Childhood Disease Screening


I’m sure many of you have used the Gene Library Search Function here on LiveWello. My child is being scheduled for an MRI to look for signs of Adrenoleukodystrophy, a rare X-linked gene. There are two templates on this site that correspond to the ABCD1 gene. One of the templates screens for an rs# that another template does not, namely rs rs6571291. Maybe I just need a little pep talk that him having a big 'ol Red + Rectangle for the test that includes rs6571291 but not for any of the other template’s findings that didn’t include this rs# is a possible mistake?


Do certain rs#'s for a SNP correspond to a higher incidence of disease?
