Disease Susceptibility Gene Test

The advent of Science has empowered us to detect what kinds of genes we inherit from our parents.  Identifying the genes’underlying susceptibility to human disease represents a major breakthrough in biomedical research.  Genetic Testing is laying the groundwork for the era of Personalized Health Management, in which the current one size-fits-all approach to health care will give way to more customized strategies.  The test information will enable healthcare professionals to tailor prevention programs to individuals based on their unique genetic makeup.

Benefits of the Disease Susceptibility Gene Test

Genetics is a study of heredity.  Predisposition is the state of being predisposed; tendency inclination, susceptibility or being prone to develop.

Disease Susceptibility Genetic Test helps you find out what diseases you are at risk for.  Smoking & drinking are risk factors but a Genetic Predisposition is the mother of all risk factors.  Having the genes mean we have a higher probability (20 to 80%) of getting the disease.  People without the genes will have a much lesser chance (6 to 10%) of developing the disease.

The Top 100 diseases prevalent in the world today are covered in our Disease Susceptibility Genetic Test (DSGT) that will bring Preventive Healthcare to a whole new dimension.

Knowing your Genetic makeup is like having been given a new set of tools to deal with inherited diseases more effectively.  Susceptibility does not mean Inevitability.  It simply means Vulnerability.  Predicting what diseases we have inherited and learning what action steps to take is the art of intervention; before an inherited condition (Genes) can become a reality, it is turned off through genetic knowledge.  Map My Gene will recommend your personalized health management in your test report to assist and counsel you on your inherited conditions and take right steps to protect your health.

Modern medicine considers diseases as the result of susceptibility gene and environment.  All of the occurrences of diseases are linked with genes.

Our Disease Susceptibility Gene Test through the latest Technology evaluates the possibility of disease occurrence and allows you to intervene early and take steps to protect your health.

This news feature story tells about Joan, a breast cancer patient who is also at risk for ovarian cancer.  She is sharing her own experiences to encourage more people to undergo genetic tests which she believes may turn out to be life-saving.

This CBS news feature shows an interview with Ms Anna Leininger, a Genetics Counsellor.  She talks about how people can make use of the information from their genetic test results to take active steps to maintain their health and keep the high-risk illnesses at bay.  She also uses the example of colon cancer to explain how genes have a big impact on our health explaining how having the information about our susceptibilities from our genetic make-up can provide us with critical information on how to protect ourselves.

Ms Leininger also addresses a common concern among most people who are considering gene testing: the mixed emotions involved after receiving the news that one has a high probability of developing a certain disease. She concludes that ultimately, knowing the risks provides more benefits than disadvantages when one looks at it objectively and logically.  After receiving the results, one is able to take preventive measures to avoid the disease, rather than blindly falling prey to the disease if one were unaware of the risks.

This clip from CBS features a case study of Gretchen, a colon cancer survivor who had taken the genetic test, and her brother, John. They had decided to take the test after realising that their family had a history of this hereditary disease.

They speak about their initial fears after seeing the results, but also about how they realised later that on the whole, taking the test had been beneficial. As Gretchen explains, if the clock could be turned back, her grandmother, who had died from the cancer at the age of 45, would have wanted to take the test and then take steps to delay the onset of the disease so as to live longer!and to watch her children grow up.

This clip features Ms Joanie Shubin, a breast cancer patient. Her condition had been caused by a genetic mutation, and it was also realised that there is a significant chance that her daughter could also have inherited this genetic mutation from her.

Here they explore the implications of taking this test on her daughter, and how her life may be affected should their worst fears be confirmed. However, finally they decide that, like in the other cases, even if the result turns out to be for the worse, it is at least anticipatory rather than reactive, which was the case for Ms Shubin when she had found out only after getting the disease. Knowing the risks can allow Ms Shubin’s daughter to take preventive steps to minimise the odds, thereby actually increasing the probability that she will not be afflicted by the disease.

This will make her case very different from her mother’s, which was to treat the disease only after it had been confirmed.
