Genetic Analysis

"Your Personal Code of Health"

Genes is a hereditary unit of all living organism that can be passed down one generation to another. It contains DNA and RNA that hold the information which would determine specific traits that distinguish as one  another such as skin order eye and blood type. Gene also determine our increased risks for specific diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases, Alzheimer’s diseases and cancer. With advancement in medical technology a preventive genetic test can now be conducted.

Once we are aware of the disease we are prove to have, early preventative measures such as life style modification and vitamin supplementation which would help delaying the-threatening manifestations.

Genetic Analysis requires that a small sample of tissue, or swab, is taken the inside of the cheek. The process is quick and completely painless. With only one requirement that the patient must abstains food and water for 2 hours before testing.

The human body consists of billions of cells, each containing a complete copy of our genetic blueprint in its nucleus. The biological information and hereditary traits contained in the nucleus are encoded in its deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), and arranged in the form of chromosomes. These chromosomes are thin strands of DNA, coiled up like a ball of string, and can be up to two meters long if stretched out.
 
The information in our DNA is stored in the form of a code comprised of four chemical based: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), thymine (T). These four bases constitute everyone’s basic genetic information, and when they are joined into long strands can be divided into discrete units called genes. Therefore, chromosomes can be thought of as being made up of strings of genes. These genes contain everything that is required to pass information your parents to you – the genetic blueprint that defines what and to a certain extent who you are. In humans, the genome is 99.9% identical one person to the next. It is the 0.1% variation that distinguishes one individual another – this is why we look different, and why we get different diseases.
