What is the Disease Susceptibility Genetic Test?
The Disease Susceptibility Genetic Test (DSGT) is a scientific DNA test to identify whether a person carries any defective genes which puts him/her at risk of developing particular diseases. 100 diseases are covered in this predictive test, and the results will state which diseases one is at risk for.
How is the Disease Susceptibility Genetic Test performed?
We employ a painless and non-invasive procedure which does not involve blood when collecting DNA samples from our clients. This simple procedure which takes only a couple of minutes is performed as follows:
Step 1: Order Online
Choose from our Inborn Talent or Disease Susceptibility DNA test. Your sample swab home kit will typically arrive within 5-7 days.
Step 2: Swab Sampling
Follow kit instructions to collect sample — all from home. Place the tube and consent form into the pre-paid envelope provided and mail it back to our sample collection point.
Step 3: Profiling Report
The samples will be tested in our lab and within a month, we will provide you with the conclusive DNA test report.
How is the Disease Susceptibility Genetic Test useful to me?
It allows one to identify which diseases they are genetically inclined to develop, before the actual onset of the disease. This will allow for early prevention by allowing you to make the necessary alterations to your lifestyle, thereby controlling the other factors which usually account for the condition.
In summary, the benefits include:
-Identify which diseases you are at risk for, and take precautions against them before they are given a chance to strike.
-Identify if you have inherited certain health problems from family members.
-Comprehensive coverage—reports on your individual risk profile that involves 100 most prevalent diseases of today.
-Personalised Health Management guide book included in the test to advise you on how to take the necessary precautions against the at-risk diseases based on your results.
Unlike a full-body check-up which only allows you to find out about the disease and seek treatment after you have contracted it, this Test allows you to know beforehand which diseases you are more susceptible to, and take the necessary measures to keep the disease at bay.
Genetic testing produces one of the most accurate results, going at the deepest level of the human body make-up. Learn to keep your body healthy and save potentially millions in medical bills!
How Accurate is Map My Gene?
The results of the tests offered by Map My Gene are known to be scientifically-proven to assert up to 99% accuracy. Clients can be rest assured that Map My Gene will only offer tests that have met stringent standards of validity, consistency and accuracy.
Who should do this test?
Anyone! A DNA test can be performed at any age.
The DSGT provides valuable insights for individuals who are interested to identify his/her health risks in order to take the appropriate measures to prevent the onset of the disease. The younger the person is, the more effective it will be, as preventive measures can be taken at a younger age for better effect.
This test is also highly recommended for anyone who has a family history of any diseases that is covered under our Test. This is because disease-causing genes can also be inherited from previous generations of the family. By taking the Test, one can know whether he/she has inherited the disease.
Do I need to take the test again after some time?
Not likely. Genetic conditions are known to be very stable. Your DNA is unlikely to change over his or her lifetime. There is no need to test again for the same attributes.
Will my results from Map My Gene genetic tests be kept confidential?
Your test results will be kept very strictly confidential. In fact, your sample will only be identified by a sample serial number throughout most of the testing process to ensure the confidentiality of your identity.
