Inherited Diseases & Conditions (IDC)- We offer more than carrier status- We map inherited disease risks, early on.
IDC is an advanced DNA screening that assesses a patient’s inherited disease risk. Simply put, we carry genes that affect our health from our ancestors. Some of these genetic variations predispose us to diseases that we could develop within our lifetime. However, genes are not the whole story but can help patients and doctors better understand the blueprint to personalized medicine.
IDC is available to help streamline food/nutrition, diet, allergies and overall wellness. This includes an up-close look at weight loss, diet and exercise as well as how your body metabolizes certain vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
From autoimmune disorders that effect the entire body, to organ specific diseases, like eye, heart and pancreas, our genes can determine our risk of disease. These panels will identify risk before the disease may be present to help with prevention and rapid diagnosis. It will allow for increased screening for the disease to prevent any complications from delayed treatment. Early diagnosis is the key to peace of mind and improving quality of life.
Our genetic testing for diseases includes:
- Auto-Inflammatory disorders
- Auto-Immune disorders
- Ear, eye, nose
- Metabolic disorders
- Muscle fitness
