WHAT INFORMATION DO WE GIVE YOU?
RISK OF MOST IMPORTANT DISEASES
Your genetic map tells of your likelihood of contracting any of a large number of the known diseases (from oncology to ophthalmology, gynecology and so on) compared to the average risk of individuals of your same race, age and sex in a specific geographic area. TellmeGen gives you the opportunity to take the necessary measures to ward-off or prevent the development of these diseases in the future. And after you have received the map results, we are here to support you and offer you our confidential help.See Illnesses
INHERITED MONOGENIC DISORDERS
Monogenic diseases are a type of inherited disorder caused by a mutation or alteration in the DNA of a single gene. Are you a carrier of any monogenetic disorder? Discover what implications this has on your health or on that of your possible descendents. With tellmeGen testing you can find out if you or your partner are carriers of any monogenic disorder and by understanding your personal Health Map, see how this will affect your descendents.See Inherited Conditions
Pharmacogenetics is the starting point of personalized medicine. Our DNA reveals that we are each different which is why our organism processes medications in different ways. You will understand why your body reacts in a certain way to divers medications when you have your Health Map. It will serve as an invaluable guide which will allow your doctor to prescribe the best drug treatment en the most adequate dosage for you for each illness. You will reduce your recuperation time and increase safety, minimizing the possibility of adverse or undesired secondary effects.See Medications
With tellmeGen you will discover what your alcohol tolerance level is, your predisposition to baldness or your tendency to obesity, allowing you to understand those traits which make you unique. Give your child the map to find out more basic aspects: Will he/she have curly hair? Will he/she be tall? What color eyes will he/she have?See Traits
HOW DO I GET MY RESULTS?
Once your map results are ready, you can see them on our Internet website in your user account. Before accessing your map you will have the opportunity to block, if you wish, that information you would prefer not to see. Afterwards you will see your map divided into four large categories: Important Illnesses, Pharmacology, Inherited Monogenic Illnesses and Individual Traits. In each category you will have your results with captions which explain what each item means and with the scientific studies about it ( a certain medicine, illness) if you wish to learn more. If you wish to see an interactive Health Map, sign up without any further obligation.
WHY DO I NEED THE MAP?

The most important benefits of this information are the prevention of illnesses, the application of the best treatment for each person and a deeper understanding of ourselves, who we are and how we are.
