Simply put, genomics testing is a detailed look at your unique genetic makeup. There is an incredible amount of information inside each of your 22,000 genes, and we look at all of it.
On one hand, we can look at genetic factors influencing existing diseases to determine the best possible treatment. On another, we can tell you exactly what diseases you are at risk for, how severe that risk is, and the best possible prevention methods.
Understanding your health at that level isn’t just important--it’s lifesaving.
Am I at risk of a serious medical condition such as heart disease, diabetes, or cancer? How can I tailor my diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices to optimize my health? Which medications and therapies are safest and most effective for me?
Risks of various cancers, coronary heart disease, heart rhythm irregularities, structural heart disease, high blood pressure, blood problems, diabetes, kidney function, respiratory problems, autoimmune diseases, stroke, eye problems, dementia, and neurodegenerative diseases.
Effects of diet, exercise, and lifestyle, e.g. the effects of dietary fat, cholesterol, animal fat, saturated fat, and whole grains; abnormal sugar desire; the effects of caffeine, alcohol, and aspirin; vitamin deficiencies and altered metabolism; endurance markers; strength and power markers; muscle problems; optimal sport choices; and longevity markers.
Ancestry – your DNA is compared to 52 ethnicities from around the globe.
Medication responses, i.e. whether a person will metabolize a drug safely and whether that drug is likely to be effective in treating a particular problem.
Rare genetic disorders – the US government estimates 10% of the population has one.
Recessive traits a person may carry in their DNA that aren’t necessarily obvious or known. A very common example is sickle cell trait, but there are many others. This information can be useful for family planning.
Your DNA can unveil many important factors. Imagine if you could find out something was coming down the pike sooner, rather than later. The necessary preventions could be taken to make it nothing more than a blip in your overall wellness instead of a health crisis.
Aging comes with many factors, and the possibility of disease is just one of them. Increased symptoms and underlying conditions make the risk of disease that much higher. As you age:
According to NAG, 40% of people who complete their whole exome testing have a life changing result.
Your children, who share many of your genes, will benefit greatly from your test results. Results for you and your spouse may indicate a need for your children to get tested. Genetic counseling and/or family planning counseling may be appropriate. NAG has a genetic counseling division specifically allocated for Cenegenics patients in need.
NAG has expert support personnel to help you and your doctor accurately interpret the results, and take appropriate action where necessary.
What if you knew which of those you were prone to?
You had the tools to combat the warning signs manifested at your basic genetic level?
There is a great deal of useful information any person (healthy or sick) can get from this type of genomic testing. You and your doctor can use these insights to structure a proactive care plan to get and keep you healthy. This analysis can help us:
Unlike most traditional testing, genomics is designed around accuracy and precision. It unravels what works and what doesn’t work for your body. That’s why the resulting treatments and lifestyle recommendations are so effective.
Whether you’re dealing with a pre-existing condition or want to know your risk factors, genomic testing can help you improve your health and regain your vitality.
Cenegenics has helped over 35,000 patients take control of their symptoms-- at the cellular level. There’s no reason to live with deficiencies any longer!
