Can the Carrier Status Report rule out the possibility that I am a carrier for an inherited disease?
No. There are a few reasons for this.
1. Xcode Life's Carrier Status Report does not include all the inherited conditions.
2. For the conditions present in the report, all the possible genetic variants may not be included. So, even if your report doesn't flag any pathogenic variant, you still can be a carrier for other variants not included in this report.
3. Your DNA raw data file may not contain all the markers we consider for the Carrier Status Report. In such cases, the pathogenic variant(s) may not be detected.
Consider talking to a healthcare professional before planning a pregnancy, if one of these conditions runs in your family, or if you have concerns about your results.
