What Does MyGenes Test?

Pre-pregnancy planning

“Tells you if you are a carrier of a genetic disease.”

Each of us carries all sorts of traits that we do not show, but we may pass on to our children who may develop a disease or become a carrier. With MyGenes, we screen for more than 76 recessive genetic conditions that could help you in your pregnancy planning. Recessive genetic conditions are caused by mutations that can be carried silently in a family for generations, only to be discovered when two carriers have a child with the condition. The most well-known of these are diseases like cystic fibrosis, non-syndromic hereditary hearing loss, Tay-Sachs disease, and beta-thalassaemia, to name a few.

Health conditions

“Predicts the possibility of you developing a disease or condition in the future”

Helps to predict the possibility of you developing a disease or condition in more than 24 diseases, thus enabling individuals to make informed decisions to try to mitigate those conditions; particularly where lifestyle and environment may also play a significant role.

Drug response

“Tells you how your body may respond to a number of common medical drugs. “

Your genetic make-up has influence on how certain drugs are processed in the body, and thus causing them to be more or less effective, or in some cases lead to personal harm with the wrong medication. This highly personalized test indicates which medications are optimal for you based on your genotype, allowing caregivers to prescribe the optimal dosage for you. Even if you are not currently taking any of these medications, this information could be critical in an emergency situation.
