Non-invasive DNA test: Health under control

Would you like to know if there are any health risks waiting for you somewhere in the future? Or why do you have problems digesting certain foods? What sports do you have predispositions to? You can find out all this very easily, just have your DNA tested. Its analysis is intended for everyone who cares about their own health and wants to take preventive measures to avoid diseases in which they are at increased risk of outbreak.

Testing is quick and easy, no injections, no need to go anywhere. All our saliva is enough for a DNA test, and taking them is a matter of a few minutes. Such a service is already quite common in the world, in Slovakia it is offered by the biotechnology company DNA ERA.

After ordering the appropriate package (Lifestyle, Health, Complex), the courier will deliver a shipment with a saliva test tube together with instructions for its use. After taking the sample with a cotton swab, inserting it into the test tube and registering it on the website, all you have to do is pack it according to the instructions and order it to be picked up via a prepaid courier. Then all you have to do is wait for the results to come in a few weeks.

Samples are sent to a certified laboratory in Germany. DNA goes through a number of laboratory processes, the output of which are the so-called raw data, which is actually a table whose output is a table with individual polymorphisms, which has more than 650,000 rows (RAW data). DNA ERA’s internal software then analyzes and evaluates this RAW data. DNA analysis does not diagnose any diseases, it is always just a genetic predisposition.

You will receive the results of the analysis in the form of a comprehensive report in PDF format, which has about 230 pages. DNA analysis can reveal the degree of genetic risk of more than 80 diseases (oncological, cardiovascular, digestion, respiration, infections). Each disease where DNA analysis reveals an increased risk of it is explained in detail. The report informs what the disease means, how often it occurs in the population, but also what to do as part of prevention. For those who want to go even deeper, there is also a scientific section describing the genetic mechanism in the background.

The report with the results is structured in a simple and understandable style. This is very important because reading medical texts is difficult for a layman. In addition to a simple explanation of the health risk, there are also recommendations on how to change your lifestyle or adjust your menu, supplement vitamins or minerals, or which types of foods to watch out for. For those who need advice on their specific case, specialist staff are available for consultation.

The report also includes a section focused on sports and nutrition. DNA also plays a key role in the structure of muscle fibers and can influence a greater predisposition to strength or endurance sports. Basal scores will tell you about your innate talent for performing specific sports activities. Your genetic score is calculated based on the genetic variants in 49 genes. This score speaks to the percentage of genetic variants that have a positive effect on a given ability. Training can tell you what type of external load your body can best adapt to (endurance or speed-force). In order not to accidentally get complexes from your results, you will also learn that a person with 100% genetic variants for a given ability will be born on Earth approximately once every 30,000 generations … ☺ In this section you will also learn about your genetic predispositions to certain types of injuries, so you know what types of sports activities you should pay more attention to.

In the section on nutrition, you will learn about the predispositions to food intolerances or problems associated with impaired absorption of, for example, vitamins and minerals. The results also include recommendations from a nutritionist, which can guide you to changes in your diet.

You may be convinced of the importance of prevention by the fact that Slovakia is one of the countries with the highest incidence of colon cancer worldwide. Statistics show that when the disease is detected in time, up to 92 percent of patients are cured in the first stage (some sources report up to 99 percent). But when a patient arrives late and is diagnosed with colon cancer at the last stage, only 12 percent of patients will still be alive in five years.

So the decision as to whether we really care about health is really in our hands.
