What can DNA tests tell us?

Many people have asked us about DNA tests and what they can tell us, especially since they aren’t exactly cheap. So, in this article, we will discuss the benefits of DNA tests currently available.

The DNA test that we are discussing is not a pathogenicity test or a test to identify family connections. Even if you are twins from the same egg, your individual DNA is still distinct from anyone else’s. This indicates that “each individual only has unique genetic characteristics.”

DNA testing involves the detailed decoding of an individual’s genetic code utilizing Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) technology. NGS is a method that uses genetic code data to examine several aspects such as ethnicity, ancestral lineage, appropriate exercise, metabolic levels, and the risk of genetic diseases.

Nonetheless, DNA tests are expensive. They’re a costly investment even if you only need to take them once in your life. So, let’s look at the benefits of DNA tests and see if it’s worth paying this much.

The data generated from DNA testing can be utilized to plan and design a variety of elements of your daily routine, including creating an exercise routine that works for you and assisting with weight loss and speedy results. It could be used to determine the probability of developing any genetic disorders, determine appropriate medications and foods, evaluate personality traits, as well as plan cosmetic treatments like looking for skin issues and stimuli that either improve or deteriorate skin.

Then, who should take DNA tests?

  1. Those who wish to organize their everyday lives and maintain a balanced diet. DNA tests help determine which dietary types, when consumed, will benefit the body the most and harm it the least.
  2. People who are concerned about their health or want to know their risk of developing genetic diseases. Many diseases, including diabetes, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, high blood pressure, heart disease, and blood vessel problems, are inherited. As such, knowing which genes are inherited can help us modify our behavior in order to reduce the likelihood of getting those diseases, especially because our lifestyle choices have a significant influence on the occurrence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
  3. Parents who are preparing for their kids and planning for their children. Due to the current global scenario, environment, and weather conditions, many parents are concerned about their children’s future. Taking the DNA tests could help parents plan better for their kids’ future.
  4. Children of learning age may benefit from DNA tests in recommending activities appropriate for their age group, interests, and aptitudes. All of these things can lead to a bright future if they are fostered and pushed in the right ways.
  5. People who enjoy exercising and taking care of their health may benefit from DNA tests. These tests can help stimulate physical and muscle growth and a healthy diet by finding what is best for each individual’s DNA or genetic features.

We are at the end of this article. Based on the above information, the admin is curious to know how you feel about DNA tests. Does it interest you? In any case, DNA tests are another option that can support you in taking care of your health that is worth considering.

If you are interested to take DNA tests, we have 2 packages that you could consider as follows:

  1. The Prestige package uses a Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) Test. This package is very special in that we test all of the chromosomes in the body, rather than just a subset. This package includes the most tests. Its report contains more than 700 items, divided into eleven categories, consisting of seven fundamental categories, three health categories, and a specific part on screening for complex, rare disorders.
  2. Use a cheek swab, also known as a buccal swab.
  3. Normal price 45,000 Baht.
  4. The waiting period to get the test results is a bit long. It may take around 2 months to get the result.
  • The Snip & Pick package uses single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chromosomal microarray technology to assess the genome of individual patients for copy number variants. Its report contains 10 categories, providing more than 500 items.
  • Use a cheek swab, also known as a buccal swab.
  • Normal price 16,000 Baht.
  • The waiting period to get the result is 1 month.

Please do not hesitate to contact us, if you have any questions or want more information.
