According to the latest scientific research, the presence of genetic variations (polymorphisms) play a factor in a person’s risk in acquiring age-related diseases. Pharmacological polymorphisms are proven to affect the tolerance, speed of metabolism, and effectiveness of many drugs. Awareness and study of an individual genetic profile helps your medical consultant in how to proceed with treatment.
Primary Preventive Sensor
This package gene test includes Thrombo Sensor, Cardiovascular, Diabetes, Hypertonia Sensor.
The Thrombo Sensor helps in prevention against developing thrombosis and the improvement of treatment. Thrombosis occur when the genes that aid in blood clots create clots that cannot be broken down by the body and blocks up blood vessels, restricting blood supply to the brain and in other parts of the body. Awareness of one’s genetic predisposition for thrombosis can help in the prevention with a few adjustments in one’s lifestyle.
Cardiovascular Sensor is a genetic test to detect cholesterol problems, elevated triglycerides, homocysteine, arteriosclerosis, and sudden cardiac arrest. This test is good for patients who are suffering from heart disease, as well as for healthy individuals. This test has three beneficial functions: prevention if you have a high risk, timely diagnosis, and improving the patient’s treatment if he/she has already developed it.
The Diabetes Sensor is the genetic test for Diabetes, specific to diabetes mellitus type 2 — commonly known as age-related diabetes. This test is beneficial for many things: prevention, early diagnosis, and improvement of its treatment through genetics.
The Hypertension Sensor is a genetic test that is not necessarily helpful in early diagnosis since checking blood pressure is a common medical practice. The hypertension sensor does help in prevention — even if you are genetically predisposed — and it helps improve treatment for patients who already have it and desire for a more specific and personal treatment for their condition.
Nutri + Pharmaco + Toxo
This package gene test includes Nutrition Sensor, Pharmaco Sensor, and Toxo Sensor.
Individuals react differently to different types of food. The Nutrition Sensor aids in designing a healthy eating guide specific to the individual.
The Pharmaco genetics test shows how certain drugs are metabolized by the body. This is a very personalized test that show which drugs might not have any effect, or might require lower dosages because the body cannot absorb it fast enough. This helps in improving and streamlining individual treatments for diseases.
The Toxo Sensor tests for oxidative stress, substances and genetics. Oxidative stress is mediated by free radicals, which are toxic chemicals produced by the body’s metabolism and conversion of oxygen. This causes tissue damages, ageing, and, in extreme cases, cancer. This test also lets the patient know how much antioxidants the body requires and what kind of lifestyle decisions need to be made and adjusted.
Primary + Nutri + Pharmaco + Toxo Sensor package
This package gene test includes Primary Prevention Sensor, Nutrition Sensor, Pharmaco Sensor, and Toxo Sensor.
Other Genetic Tests
Scientists have found out that around sixty to eighty percent of obesity and of being overweight is caused by genetics, not just lifestyle. The Weight Sensor helps the patient manage his/her weight based on his/her genetic profile. This factors in designing a diet and exercise program that would optimize healthy weight-loss.
Female Health Sensor
Specifically for women, this genetic analysis looks at 19 polymorphisms with impact on different categories such as allergy, breast, colon, brain, skin, weight, and pregnancy. The Female Health Sensor could help with the customization of individual therapy and give more prevention options.
Breast Health Sensor
The Breast Health Sensor is effective in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. With this gene test, the individual would know is she is genetically at risk for breast cancer and could consequently adapt a lifestyle that could lower that risk. This test also aids patients by testing gene variations for the effect of over 40 relevant drugs for better chances of recovery through optimal drug therapy.
Prostate Health Sensor
The Prostate Health Sensor is a genetic test to ascertain the prostate cancer risk in men, as well as prostate hypoplasia — an enlargement of the prostate that is not cancer yet. This test is suitable for preventing these diseases, or for early diagnosis of the disease to obtain optimized treatment.
The ADHD Sensor ensures an accurate risk assessment for ADHD and definition of type — inattentive/hyperactive. It also provides an analysis of the efficiency of various medications for the condition, preventing untoward side effects. The sensor also aids in optimizing therapy for individuals positive for ADHD.
While a cure is still yet to be found for Alzheimer’s disease, genetic testing can show if the patient has a genetic predisposition for the disease. Knowing that one is in high risk for Alzheimer gives the individual the opportunity to modify his/her lifestyle — from nutrition, habits, and activities —in order to delay, or even prevent the onset of the disease. For people who already have Alzheimer’s, genetic testing helps improve the treatment by showing which drugs and the correct dosage work for the patient’s genetic makeup and avoid the drugs that will prove ineffective or the ones that could cause severe side effects.
