QuickCheck: is an iGene DNA test right for me?

iGene

By answering the questions below, you can find out whether an iGene Passport is right for you and, if so, which iGene DNA test may be of interest.

1. Are you over 18?
2. Are you of European or Asian descent?
3. Would you be interested in receiving information about all kinds of personal traits, such as your caffeine sensitivity, your chance of having red hair and the possibility of being gluten or lactose intolerant?
4. Do you want to know which drugs you are particularly sensitive to?
5. Would you like to receive lifestyle advice ordered by relevance, even if this concerns familiar health recommendations?
6. Do you realise that genetic predisposition is not the only factor that can determine your risk of developing all kinds of conditions, but that lifestyle, for example, also plays a role?

Various factors have an influence on whether or not you develop certain conditions. At iGene we determine your genetic predisposition on the basis of a DNA analysis.

Besides the genetic component, dietary, lifestyle and environmental factors also play an important role in relation to diseases and health. For each condition your iGene Passport not only tells you your genetic predisposition, but also provides you with the most relevant lifestyle advice.

7. Is there a specific disease that is common at an unusually young age within your family? And is detecting this disease the reason why you want to take a DNA test?
Are there indications that your family has a specific genetic disorder and is the targeted detection of such a specific genetic disorder your reason for taking the test? In this case, we recommend that you contact your doctor to check whether you qualify for a genetic test performed by a clinical geneticist.

We believe that every adult must be able to make his or her own decisions, but we do not advocate the ordering of DNA tests for or by minors.

Not enough scientific research is available for all ethnic backgrounds to make responsible statements about a person’s genetic predisposition to certain conditions.

Consequently, we are able to make relevant statements for people with an Asian or European background, but not for people of African descent, for example.

Science is discovering more and more about the role that our DNA plays in all kinds of personal traits.

While this information may not have as great an impact as information about your predisposition to certain conditions, many people find it interesting to see which things they recognise in themselves or discover in this way.

Your sensitivity to many drugs is determined by your genes.

By sharing information about your drug sensitivity with your doctor or pharmacist, you can help them find the right dose (or an alternative) for a particular drug more quickly.

The iGene DNA test is not a clinical test, but provides concrete indications concerning your sensitivity to drugs. If your doctor sees reason to do so, he or she can always refer you on to a clinical geneticist for further testing.

Based on your DNA, iGene provides you with lifestyle advice that will be most beneficial for you in terms of improving your health. Much of this advice will sound familiar to you.

Nevertheless, in the context of a gene passport it may offer extra added value, as you can immediately see what this type of advice could mean for you personally.

The iGene DNA test expresses your risk of developing different conditions in the form of two percentages:

1. The average risk based on your sex, age and ethnicity.

2. Your personal risk based on our analysis of your DNA. These are conditions in which early detection or lifestyle also plays a role and we offer relevant lifestyle advice for each condition.

Consequently, you not only gain an insight into your ‘strengths’ and ‘weaknesses’, but you can also actually benefit from this information.

The iGene DNA test has been developed to provide you with information about your genetic predisposition in a broader sense. It is not therefore intended for specific medical screening.

Are there indications that your family has a specific genetic disorder and is the targeted detection of such a specific genetic disorder your reason for taking the test? In this case, we recommend that you contact your doctor to check whether you qualify for a genetic test performed by a clinical geneticist.
