Now, you can identify individual potential risk for certain diseases, and get accurate reports on how to reduce or eliminate the occurrence of disease later in life.
Genetic Knowledge Is Freedom of Choice
The recent completion of the Human Genome Project has made possible a simple genetic test that can actually reveal an individual’s potential susceptibility to specific diseases, making advance risk reporting possible. This highly accurate genetic diagnostic testing can clearly pinpoint health risks which previously would have been lurking out-of-sight. With this new information, you and your physician can make smarter decisions about your health care so you can avoid the health conditions you may encounter otherwise. Ask about getting your own personalized report. Then you can travel down life’s road more relaxed, and more confident of better health.
SNPs, You & Disease
You probably already know you’re not perfect. Well, neither are your genes. Within your genetic makeup, there are slight “variations” called Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (commonly called SNPs, pronounced “snips”).
Although they don’t cause disease, SNPs are associated with almost every human disease. The “expression” of one’s genes into an actual disease isn’t inevitable, as many people think. The genetic variations which make a person particularly susceptible to a specific type of disease most often do so when exposed to certain, often modifiable factors, such as your environment, diet and lifestyle.
Genes Don’t Equal “Fate”
Genes have jobs to do. Simply put, it isn’t the “fate” of any of your genes (even your SNPs) to express themselves as a disease. Your SNPs need all the help they can get, first by being identified, and then by having their environment modified.
That’s where comes in. By taking a simple test, it can inform you and your physician of the specific SNPs you have, making it possible to plan a way “around” your potential risk. Since it takes your genes and their “environment” to trigger most disease, you can easily take your personalized “alternate route” to avoid the risks, and enjoy a healthier journey in life.
Generally Who Should Have This Test?
When conditions “run in families” they often have a genetic component. This test can show what specific genetic factors might pose a potential problem for You.
If you learn you have a modifiable genetic variation, your family members can also be tested to see whether they have it. The sooner it’s known, the sooner you and/or they can begin changing course toward a healthier future.
Its Never Too Late to learn about risks over the horizon. Just knowing why you’re experiencing a problem can reduce your stress.
