DNA Sequencing To Help in Diagnosing Chronic Kidney Disease

An estimated 14 percent of people in the United States have chronic kidney disease, and between 10 and 25 percent of these individuals have a family history of kidney problems. Diagnosing chronic kidney disease can now be done easier with DNA sequencing. A new study from Columbia University Medical Center found that DNA sequencing could identify the genetic cause of the disease and influence treatment for many patients with chronic kidney disease.
