WHAT INFORMATION DO WE GIVE YOU?
RISK OF MOST IMPORTANT DISEASES
Your genetic map tells of your likelihood of contracting any of a large number of the known diseases (from oncology to ophthalmology, gynecology and so on) compared to the average risk of individuals of your same race, age and sex in a specific geographic area. TellmeGen gives you the opportunity to take the necessary measures to ward-off or prevent the development of these diseases in the future. And after you have received the map results, we are here to support you and offer you our confidential help.
INHERITED MONOGENIC DISORDERS
Monogenic diseases are a type of inherited disorder caused by a mutation or alteration in the DNA of a single gene. Are you a carrier of any monogenetic disorder? Discover what implications this has on your health or on that of your possible descendents. With tellmeGen testing you can find out if you or your partner are carriers of any monogenic disorder and by understanding your personal Health Map, see how this will affect your descendents.
Pharmacogenetics is the starting point of personalized medicine. Our DNA reveals that we are each different which is why our organism processes drugs in different ways. You will understand why your body reacts in a certain way to divers drugs when you have your Health Map. It will serve as an invaluable guide which will allow your doctor to prescribe the best drug treatment en the most adequate dosage for you for each illness. You will reduce your recuperation time and increase safety, minimizing the possibility of adverse or undesired secondary effects.
With tellmeGen you will discover what your alcohol tolerance level is, your predisposition to baldness or your tendency to obesity, allowing you to understand those traits which make you unique. Give your child the map to find out more basic aspects: Will he/she have curly hair? Will he/she be tall? What color eyes will he/she have?
In recent years, thanks to our ability to look within our genetic material we have been able to know that the origin of the modern human being relays in the African continent, 200,000 years ago, to unravel the footprints of the fabulous journey that our species undertook out of Africa that led us to populate all the continents, and, finally, to reconstruct more recent demographic events, which extend up the present days.
The sum of all these events, memory of their past, is what configures the genetic composition of the current human populations.
