Insights and Health Risk

Before You Have Symptoms

image87

As unique as your DNA. 

A genetic diagnosis offers peace of mind and can point to better treatment options

  • Genetic  testing can bring certainty to a medical diagnosis, which can confirm your treatment plan or, in some cases, help identify new or better treatments.


Knowing  if your condition is genetic can help loved ones know if they might also  be at risk.

Wellness Support

PROACTIVE HEALTH

CARDIAC SCREEN

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to be the leading cause of death  in the US¹ Guidelines are evolving to implement new  kinds of cardiovascular testing that may help  save  millions of lives.

  • 1 in every 3 deaths in the US is related to CVD
  • About 2,300 Americans die of CVD each day—one every 38 seconds
  • 720,000 Americans per year will have a heart attack for the first time
  • Nearly half of all heart attack patients are found to have no prior risk that would indicate they are heading toward an attack
  • Many of the risk factors contributing to CVD are modifiable—such as smoking, physical inactivity, and nutrition

DEMENTIA

 the role of genetics is similar in the case of Alzheimer’s disease, which accounts for up to 80 percent of all dementia cases. Researchers have discovered a number of single-gene mutations that are directly associated with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease,...Many dementias are progressive, meaning symptoms start out slowly and gradually get worse.  And even if symptoms suggest dementia, early diagnosis allows a person to get the maximum benefit from available treatments and provides an opportunity to volunteer for clinincal trials or studies. It also provides time to plan for the future

PARKINSON'S

 Genetic testing in Parkinson's disease can play an important role in diagnosing the illness. Scientists hope that the knowledge provided by genetics will ultimately help slow or stop its progression. Genes are carried in our DNA, units of inheritance that determine the traits that are passed down from parent to child.

Earlier Diagnosis

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is highly prevalent, and its incidence is expected to double by 2050.1Understanding the disease through early diagnosis and differentiating it from other forms of dementia can be helpful for physicians and patients. Early diagnosis of Alzheimer-type dementia  is a crucial factor in its management. We offer tests to aid in the  diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disorders. Scientists have identified variations that cause Alzheimer's and several genes that increase risk but don't guarantee that a person will develop the disease.

RESULTS

Additional Information

  POSITIVE TEST RESULTS■

  •   If you receive a positive test result, described in medical terms as “pathogenic” or “likely pathogenic,” this means that your test found a genetic change that increases your risk of developing a specific medical condition.
  •   This does not mean that you will definitely develop that condition, but it does mean that you are significantly more likely to develop it than the average person. 
  •   In consultation with your doctor, you can design  a medical management plan that addresses this increased risk.
  • If your increased risk is discovered before the onset of disease symptoms, there maybe treatment available to prevent or delay the onset of symptoms.
  • . A genetic counselor is available at no cost.
  • You may also receive a result that indicates that you carry a genetic change that does not increase your own risk of developing a specific medical condition, but that may be passed within your family (also known as carrier status). 
  •  While receiving such a result may be concerning, it also provides valuable health insights for you, your doctor, and your family—and gives you the opportunity to address your risk with an appropriate medical management plan.
  • NEGATIVE TEST RESULTS If you receive a “negative” result, you have just learned some very valuable information: You do not carry genetic changes in  the genes evaluated that are currently known to be associated with serious health conditions.
  •  Even with a negative genetic test result, proactive medical care and a healthy lifestyle are essential to your overall well being and longevity.
