How can tellmeGen help me with a DNA test to improve my health?
Complex diseases are named so because they are influenced by multiple genes, as well as environmental and social conditions. While they may be considered DNA-related diseases, they are not solely due to a specific mutation but rather various factors. Thanks to advances in genetics, the risk of developing a particular disease can be predicted based on your DNA.The genetic test for diseases includes genetic predisposition to complex diseases by comparing the analysis of your genes with that of thousands of individuals in our database, based on previous studies.Although this factor is important, it is important to note that other factors, such as our lifestyle habits, also play a significant role in the development of such diseases. Therefore, a low genetic risk does not mean immunity, nor does a high risk guarantee that you will develop the disease.With the tellmeGen disease gene study, you will have the opportunity to work with your healthcare professional to take measures to prevent its development in the future if possible.
Which kits include genetic predisposition to diseases?
These reports are exclusively included in the Advanced DNA kits.With this range, you will also have access to your DNA test results related to monogenic hereditary diseases, pharmacological compatibility, personal traits, wellness data, your ancestry, and the possibility of accessing the DNA Connect service.
What diseases can be acquired through genetic predisposition?
In all pathologies with a genetic basis, there is a genetic predisposition, to a greater or lesser degree. Even pathologies caused by external factors can be conditioned by the individual's genome.The most common diseases with a genetic predisposition are cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and various neurological disorders.
How long will the results of my genetic predisposition to diseases study take?
The analysis results, including the genetic predisposition test, normally take between 4 to 6 weeks at most, depending on the workload during those dates.Unfortunately, at present we cannot shorten these times or expedite the methodology without affecting the quality of the result, which is our highest priority.
I would like to know more about the genetic predisposition to diseases report:
Here you can see a demo example of the results in the section. Upon access, you will see the list of diseases we analyze. If you wish to view the technical report for each one, simply click on its name.
