DNA TESTING

We are pleased to launch DNA testing onsite here at ReDefined for 2024!

 

DNA Health® tests for genetic variations that are known to have a significant effect on health and susceptibility to chronic diseases. DNA Health reports on key biological pathways that govern overall health and helps understand how genetic weaknesses in these pathways may increase predisposition to chronic diseases of lifestyle.

CLINICAL VALUE

It can be viewed as a ‘foundation to health’ test and is therefore appropriate for any individual seeking to improve their health outcomes, be it those who already suffer health complaints such as chronic fatigue, gut issues, cardiovascular disease, or insulin resistance, or those who are concerned about a family history of a chronic disease of lifestyle. The test is also valuable for those who would like to optimise health outcomes and refine their health routine with a targeted approach to diet, lifestyle, and nutraceuticals.

THE REPORTS PROVIDE:

The level of impact of any genetic variants identified

  • An explanation of their impact on health

  • Appropriate nutritional and lifestyle recommendations

The results are divided into sections of key metabolic functions so that genetic weaknesses and strengths within a functional area can be easily identified.

The addition of our DNA Health package including testing DIO2 to detect mutation affecting the conversion of T4 to T3

D2 deiodinase enzymes are produced in our cells to enable the conversion of T4 to the much stronger form of thyroid hormone, T3. A mutation in the DIO2 gene can cause a deficiency of T3 within the cells, but the usual thyroid hormone function tests will not show up a problem. This means that TSH, T4 and T3 blood tests will look normal.

Most of the biological effects of thyroid hormone in the body are due to the action of T3. The most common forms of thyroid hormone replacement involve giving T4 in the form of Synthroid, Levoxyl, Levothyroxine, among others. Due to polymorphism of the deiodinase 2 gene, the peripheral conversion of T4 to T3 is impaired, and the addition of T3 might be needed to compensate for reduced intracellular T3 levels which cannot be detected on blood tests.
