從父母身上遺傳下來的健康風險,基因檢測是什麼?

Hereditary health risks.

What is genetic testing?
Genes can be viewed as a user’s manual for the human body. The body can determine how to function on various levels by interpreting the blueprint of a genetic makeup.
Genes can determine something as small as whether the face will turn red from alcohol consumption (the liver’s ability to metabolize alcohol), to how a fertilized egg will grow into a fetus and who will the fetus resemble after birth.

How is genetic testing conducted?
Clients will provide oral and blood samples through oral scrapers and blood drawing. After obtaining the cells and purifying the DNA, the lab will analyze the genetic condition.

基因檢測怎麼做?有什麼幫助?

How does this help?
Having an understanding of genes is like having an instructions manual for the human body. An understanding of the general condition of the body can be obtained including hereditary diseases, the characteristics of various bodily systems, and needed adjustments to lifestyle and eating habits, etc.
There is no such thing as a good or bad gene. However, an understanding of the body’s genes allows us to understand how we are physically affected by the environment and how we should maintain our bodies.

基因是人體的說明書,透過基因檢測可以更了解自己

我們常常說的遺傳,其實秘密就是藏在基因裡,基因不只控制了我們會長什麼樣子,也決定我們的體質。
 

現在的基因檢測技術已經可以知道人體的某些基因如何表現,寶血的基因檢測精選癌症29項、常見心血管疾病37項與退化性疾病基因9項,採用與中研院、國衛院同等級技術與設備,並採用亞洲人基因庫,包含752,281位點,24,537有意義的基因。

 

讓您知道您先天帶有的基因是不是和現在發現有罹病的人有關聯,完整精準風險評估都在專業的報告解說告訴您。

基因檢測中的罹病高度關聯,是什麼意思?

報告書中顯示罹病高度關聯,並不等同於確認罹患此疾病,而是您的基因型在臨床上與有罹病的人士相同,因此,若能提早得知風險,便能提前做好「預防措施」。
