what diseases are genetic? There are many diseases that are caused by genetic mutations, including;

Cystic fibrosis
Huntington’s disease
Sickle cell anemia
Tay-Sachs disease
Muscular dystrophy
Marfan syndrome
Down syndrome
Turner syndrome
Klinefelter syndrome
Fragile X syndrome
Polycystic kidney disease
Phenylketonuria (PKU)
These are just a few examples of the many genetic diseases that exist. It’s important to note that while genetic mutations may increase the risk of certain diseases, not all people with these mutations will necessarily develop the disease. Environmental factors and other genetic factors can also play a role in determining whether a person develops a particular disease.
