Map Genes to Prevent Disease

Mapping DNA helps in preventive healthcare…

Genome and DNA mapping and assessment is concerned with analysis of a person’s genes to detect the propensity of the person to develop specific diseases. Diseases for which testing is done include diabetes, heart diseases, obesity, cancer, glaucoma, alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, male pattern baldness etc. It is also possible to assess personal characteristics like being susceptible to drug addiction or alcoholism, lactose intolerance, at risk to stress, athletic ability, intolerance to particular drugs etc.

After becoming aware about the risk of developing a particular illness, it is possible to reduce chances of that happening by making lifestyle changes and by taking medicines recommended. When there are strong chances of contracting an illness, radical measures may be needed like in the case of Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie who went ahead with a double mastectomy on discovering through genetic testing that she has a hereditary mutated gene associated with breast cancer.

How do I get my genes analysed?

Please find in the Resources section below companies undertaking DNA mapping in various cities. You may contact the company operating in your city and then visit them to give sample of your saliva or blood. If you do not find any company operating in your city, it is still possible for you to get your genes tested by sending a saliva or blood sample in a through courier in a special kit provided by the company.

You can go in for various test packages such as susceptibility to top 10 cancers, propensity to develop top 25 diseases including cancer, cardio-vascular and neurological diseases or a complete genetic mapping. If susceptibility for any disease is identified, genomic counsellors from the testing companies would furnish a preventive healthcare plan involving diet and lifestyle changes as well as medication.
