We believe everyone could make better life decisions when they have more information and knowledge at hand. Hence, this test is recommended to those interested in disease prevention through genetic testing. Knowing what diseases your genes are susceptible to can help you take action early in life to prevent the triggering of diseases, resulting in a healthier body and a greater lifestyle.

How does DSGT differ from Full-body medical examination?

In a typical medical examination, your doctor would look out for signs for anything that may be seen as harmful to the human body. By the time symptoms are identified, it is possible that the patient has already contracted the disease.

Concerning DSGT, it's sole purpose is to identify areas of higher risk regarding your DNA. A personalized health report will be provided to educate clients on how to correct their eating habits and lifestyle to prevent any high-risk disease from emerging. However, if you are already ill, the DSGT may confirm the high susceptibility rate of getting contracted with a certain illness, and provide you with alternative solutions to battle that disease.

How many diseases are covered in the DSGT?

100 diseases will be covered and are categorized in the following bodily systems:
a. Cardiovascular
b. Respiratory
c. Biliary
d. Digestive

f.  Eye/Nose/Ear/Mouth/Skin
