Genetic susceptibility tests examine genetic characteristics that are associated with an individual’s greater predisposition to certain factors with an impact on health.
Genetic susceptibility tests
Genetic susceptibility tests examine genetic characteristics that are known to be associated with an individual’s greater predisposition to various previously identified factors.
Selection and analysis of genes
In our protocol, we select genetic polymorphisms that, when analyzed, give us a more precise and individualized indication of some characteristics that can be worked on directly to obtain better results and in a faster way.
By deciphering this genetic information, we are able to apply external mechanisms (such as lifestyle changes, supplements, vitamins, drugs) that allow various levels of optimization and / or bet on the prevention of some pathologies to which there is a greater susceptibility (and that can be worked in the scope of our consultations), such as, for example, Insulin Resistance, Hypertension, Osteoporosis, and Inflammatory and Oxidative Pattern.
In this way, our medical team is able to produce a transversal and individualized plan with a view to introducing changes in lifestyle, supplementation, introduction of antioxidants, modulators and / or drugs that delay or eliminate the appearance of various health problems, always as possible.
It also analyzes how we deficiently process certain vitamins and other elements, enabling the doctor to prevent these deficiencies and, further, to analyze which type of exercise is most appropriate for each person. This allows more performance in a shorter period of time and to know which rest periods must be respected, as well as the risk of injury.
Genetic tests say how am I going to die?
Do genetic tests say if I will get cancer?
No. Genetic tests are susceptibility (probability / risk) and not diagnostic tests.
What is the difference between susceptibility tests and diagnostic tests?
The susceptibility tests give us the medical guidelines that we must follow to implement a personalized and multidisciplinary health plan, in order to decrease the probability of certain pathologies to appear.
Diagnostic tests assume the existence of a clinical suspicion and tend to be confirmatory, generally supported by family history. They are performed preferably in hospitals and not in our center.
