A genetic predisposition is an increased likelihood of developing a particular disease based on a person's genetic makeup. Genetic predisposition of any disease results from specific genetic variations that are often inherited from a parent. These genetic changes contribute to the development of a disease. Some people with a predisposing genetic variation will never get the disease while others will, even within the same family.
Genomic analysis is intended for all the people who are aware of the close correlation between health, quality of life and life as such. Changes in many genes, each with a small effect, may underlie susceptibility to many common diseases, including cancer, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and mental illness.
Being aware of one's genetic predisposition to certain diseases enables one to make adequate and timely changes in one's lifestyle and to institute preventive actions. However, our health does not depend solely on our genes, but also on the environment and behavioural patterns. DNA Health Wellness analyses include preventive measures, medical advice and recommendations for each disease, whenever possible. We suggest you to follow them especially in areas where our analysis shows that you have an increased genetic predisposition.
