FAQ's

Isn’t DNA testing used to find relatives?
DNA testing can be used to identify relatives but there is far more to it than that. Although many people enjoy locating distant relatives via DNA samples, your DNA can be used to discover key medical information which could transform your lifestyle. As with all medical testing, the results of your DNA tests are kept completely confidential and are only disclosed to you. As well as helping to resolve specific issues, DNA testing can give you a greater insight into your overall health and your risk factors for certain diseases. As a result, it can be used to help manage and maintain your health.
How long does DNA testing take?
In most cases, DNA testing can be carried out by taking a saliva or blood sample. This will then be analysed before the results are delivered to you. Your doctor will contact you to confirm that your results have arrived and to provide guidance on any subsequent lifestyle modifications which may be recommended.
Who can benefit from DNA testing?
DNA tests can benefit all of us for various reasons.  If you are having trouble losing or gaining weight and you don’t know why, DNA testing could help to determine which type of weight modification program will be most effective for you. Similarly, if you’re receiving treatment for a particular condition but you’d like to improve the efficacy of this treatment, DNA testing can show which medications your body is most likely to respond to.
