Genetic Gene testing is a multi-gene DNA test that can routinely be added to assessment of:
- blood cholesterol and
- glucose levels,
- blood pressure and
- Body mass index (BMI) as part of Wellness Programs offered by healthcare practitioners.
It includes analysis of variation in clinically useful genes that may contribute to:
- abnormal cholesterol levels,
- homocysteine accumulation,
- blood clotting,
- iron overload and
Some of these abnormalities contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes, obesity and hypertension. Oxidative stress, detoxification of carcinogens and traditional oestrogen exposure are also important considerations in this context.
