Modern medical studies have shown that almost all diseases have association with genes. For example, abnormalities in the genome can directly cause diseases, especially when the abnormalities present at birth (congenital), in which case the disease is a genetic disorder. Also, common medical problems such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are likely to be associated with the effects of multiple genes in combination with environmental factors. Similar to blood types, a gene can be present in different forms or genotypes through polymorphisms. As a result, each genotype can lead to different sensitivity to environmental factors and different susceptibility to disease. Abnormal or mutated genes can also influence a person’s susceptibility to particular diseases directly. Through genetic testing, we can assess individual genetic profiles for disease risk and find purposeful, targeted interventions to minimize risk.
Our disease risk prediction covers the circulatory, motor, endocrine, respiratory, genitourinary, digestive, nervous, sensory systems and more. We review individuals’ risk of diseases and recommend the high-risk individual for professional prevention measures. In this way, individuals can detect diseases earlier or even avert the occurrence of those diseases. Taking the genetic test, we can even assess the heredity risk of certain diseases for the entire family and thus provide useful genetic information for family disease prevention.
