Osteoporosis and hemochromatosis are both late-onset preventable diseases, but future genetic tests for these conditions are likely to differ in their predictive abilities. To determine whether interest in a specific genetic test for hemochromatosis would be higher than interest in a theoretical test for osteoporosis susceptibility, undergraduate women at the University of Cincinnati (N = 181) were surveyed regarding their interest in genetic testing for these conditions. The clinical features… CONTINUE READING
