The Genetic Predisposition Test analyses your DNA profile for a genetic predisposition to 34 illnesses, as well as revealing your risk level for developing a particular disease. Your results will also evaluate your risk to a particular disease over your lifetime, and compare this risk to that of the rest of the population.
This test can be used by people wanting an insight into their potential health future, and may help to alleviate worries associated with having a strong family history of a particular disease. Your results can prompt you to take preventative action so that you minimise your risk of getting a genetically inherited disease.
We recommend that you consult a genetic counsellor both prior to, and after your test. A genetic counsellor can assist in deciphering your results, so that you get the best and most accurate information relating to your individual test.
With a simple mouth swab, the test analyses to see if your DNA contains key markers associated with the onset of a number of diseases, categorised as follows:
