NTSAD provides family services, research, and education for
Tay-Sachs, GM-1, Sandhoff, Canavan and allied diseases.
Join our cause to wipe out these genetic diseases.
If your relative had a baby with Tay-Sachs disease, he or she is a carrier. If this is a blood relative, you may be at increased risk to be a carrier. It’s a good idea to discuss this family history information with your doctor or genetics professional. Remember, you are only at risk of having a child with Tay-Sachs disease if both you and your partner are carriers.
