Can I create an anamnesis if I'm adopted?

If you're adopted, it can be harder for you to compile an anamnesis. Of course, you can always begin with your own medical history. It is also not impossible for you to get this vital information. In an open adoption, you can ask your birth parents and their family members about their medical history. In some cases, adoption agencies collect medical information from birth parents and keep this information on file. You can also ask your adoptive parents whether they received any medical information about your genetic family at the time of the adoption.
