Did you watch your parents or other family members suffer from certain age-related illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, or diabetes? Are you worried that you may have a genetic predisposition to these same illnesses? Are you interested in finding what preventive measures you can take to ensure that you don’t develop the illnesses your parents or older relatives had?
As a result of genomic research, it is now possible to test your particular genetic material to determine which, if any, chronic or age-related illnesses you are at risk for. The 12 SNP genetic test will test 12 different genes that influence your heart health traits, cancer risk, mental illness risk, and other complex health conditions. The information obtained can then be used to tailor a highly individualized diet and lifestyle plan for you that can minimize your risk of developing these conditions.
According to the new science of epigenetics, having a gene does not mean that you will express that gene. If you take measures early on to prevent age-related illnesses, you can avoid acquiring them even though you may be genetically predisposed. Knowing which conditions you are at higher risk of acquiring based on your genes can help you take more specific preventive measures that will further reduce your chances of acquiring these illnesses.
