The Genetic Predisposition test covers many different diseases and syndromes which have an inheritable mutation including
The human genome consists of approximately three billion base pairs. Though very similar, each person has small variations referred to as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). These variations are thought to be responsible for individual differences, including the predisposition to certain diseases. By having your family’s DNA to compare, doctors and scientists are able to map the shared mutations that are linked to disease in a family. The more generations that can be compared the more accurate the predictions become. In the near future some minor DNA mutations can be corrected before they are able to cause disease. Knowing which ones are a risk then also becomes very important.
The Genetic Predisposition test covers many different diseases and syndromes which have an inheritable mutation including: Atrial Fibrillation, Alzheimer’s Disease, Bladder Cancer, Breast Cancer,
Cervical Cancer, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, Colorectal Cancer, Depression, Esophageal Cancer, Gastric Cancer, Glaucoma, Keratoconus, Liver Cancer, Lung Cancer, Lymphoma, Macular Degeneration, Melanoma, Meningioma, Multiple Sclerosis, Myocardial Infarction, Neuroblastoma, Oral/Throat Cancer, Osteoporosis, Ovarian Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Severe Dry Eye Syndrome, Skin Cancer, Stroke, Thrombosis, Thyroid Cancer, and Type 2 Diabetes.
You will receive an easy to read printed, bound report reviewing your results. This will show the SNP markers tested, and the findings which include your logarithmic, statistical, relative, level of risk, as well as internal stress level potential problems.
This allows families to build a genetic family tree, to understand if and when the next generation is at risk.
