The power to know
With gene-based testing, you can better understand if you are at increased health risks due to changes in your genes. Knowing if you are at higher risks means you can take steps today to get the most effective monitoring and treatments. For example, people who find out they have a higher risk of colon cancer may get tested for the cancer at an earlier age. People who have a higher risk for developing high cholesterol can talk with their doctor about ways to avoid the condition altogether (such as changing what they eat); that could make a big difference for your long-term health.
Did you know?
Screening of several genes can change the way your care will be managed. This Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) Oncology study indicates that you will find more people with increased risk of developing cancer and, in most cases, this will lead to a change in care. A change in care could include starting mammograms up to 10 years earlier, screening more often or prophylactic interventions.
Kailos will soon be launching gene-based testing for many different health conditions.
