Understanding your ancestry can be exciting and bring new perspectives and people into your life. You might discover that you are 15% Korean or 25% Italian! It could open doors to connect with long lost family or help you to feel complete. But what's next?
As well as defining your past, your genes may define your future. Your genes contain the blueprint for your entire body: its strengthens and weaknesses, your talents and your risk.
The 23andMe Health + Ancestry Service details some interesting information about your risks, but the Futura 28 health DNA test provides more! Our test has been designed to detect your predisposition to 28 common diseases. While we can't tell you about your ancestry, we are great at assessing these health risks and providing the insights needed to take preventative action.
At Futura Genetics, we analyze the raw data from your past 23andMe test. We include BRCA status for breast cancer risk. We test 8 additional SNPs on the ATM gene to define your risk more precisely.
We test for other types of cancer such as bladder, colorectal, gastric, lung and prostate cancer, basal cell carcinoma and melanoma.
Autoimmune diseases appear when the body’s own immune system mistakenly attacks itself. Instead of fighting foreign invaders, the antibodies produced by the immune system damage self-tissues.
Celiac Disease (CD) is connected to mutations in HLA-DQB1 and HLA-DQA1 genes. We investigate your possible risk.
In addition, Futura Genetics can detect your risk of developing other autoimmune diseases including lupus, Graves’ disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis.
The 23andMe test identifies your risk of age-related macular degeneration caused by mutations in the ARMS2 and CFH genes.
The Futura 28 health DNA test goes further and explores your risk of open-angle glaucoma and exfoliating glaucoma. With glaucoma one of the most common reasons for sight loss, this assessment is crucial.
Forty-six percent of men develop coronary heart disease during their lifetime, with genetics and lifestyle playing a substantial role in actual risk. With the Futura 28 health DNA test, you’ll uncover any underlying contributory genetic factors as well as being tested for a genetic predisposition to atrial fibrillation, peripheral vascular disease and intracranial aneurysm.
Based on your 23andMe raw data we will estimate your risk of developing diabetes (type I and type II), migraine and alopecia (hair loss). You can then better manage environmental and lifestyle factors to reduce your lifetime risk.
The Futura 28 health DNA test has already helped many people to improve their lifestyles and place the cornerstone for a healthier future. We are proud to make it even easier for 23andMe users to get expanded testing and further valuable insights.
