Genetic testing involves examining your DNA, the chemical database that carries instructions for your body’s functions. Genetic testing can reveal changes (mutations) in your genes that may cause illness or disease.
Although genetic testing can provide important information for diagnosing, treating and preventing illness, there are limitations. For example, if you’re a healthy person, a positive result from genetic testing doesn’t always mean you will develop a disease. On the other hand, in some situations, a negative result doesn’t guarantee that you won’t have a certain disorder.
Genetic screening will help physicians avoid adverse effects and optimise treatment for patients. Patients who carry certain genetic variations are at risk for severe drug-induced adverse effects. The USFDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) recommends genetic testing prior to administering these drugs, to reduce adverse effects.

Unravel the genome-diet connection – Your genes dictate how your body responds to food, breaks down fat, assimilates nutrients, signals us to eat, etcetera, etcetera. In parallel, what you eat affects the activity of certain genetic elements and their impact on your health. Nutrigenomics is the branch of science that studies this complex relationship between your genetics and your diet. Understanding how these two factors interact with each other is key to discovering DNA-based nutrition solutions for optimal health.
Benefits of My Nutri Gene:
Complete diet analysis: How much omega-3 do you need? Are you eating enough greens? Get a breakdown of what your body needs, by knowing your genetic predisposition to micronutrient levels in your body.
Prevent Disease: Worried about gluten intolerance? Family history of diabetes? Don’t wait for symptoms, avoid them instead. Prevent vitamin deficiency, detect underlying risk for food sensitivities, boost immunity and prevent disease.
Track your fitness: Thinking of going the keto way? Do you struggle to lose the last few kilos? Keep tabs on genetic tendencies to store fat, lose/gain weight, and more. Monitor factors that cumulatively affect your fitness levels.
Genome-wide analysis: We analyze several regions in your genome which interact with dietary elements and vice versa. We look at your genes which are responsible for nutrient absorption, converting carbohydrates to fat, weight management and more.

EARLY DETECTION INCREASES SURVIVAL & PRODUCES BETTER OUTCOMES.
Cancers are most curable in early stages of manifestation. Unfortunately, less than 20% of the cancer patients in India are diagnosed and treated in the early stages. Most cancers in the country are detected at a later stage due to the lack of awareness and screening strategies. Cancer screening can help in early detection, management and potentially, curing cancer.
Both biochemical & genetic markers are analyzed in this test, to provide an accurate risk assessment for different cancers and known risk factors. Apart from testing for standard biochemical parameters which help detect cancer, DNA OncoScreenTM analyzes genetic risk factors which are predictive of an individual’s lifetime risk for cancer
