What are Predictive Medicine Tests?
It is possible to perform predictive medicine tests with medical reports and indications about targeted screening and possible integration with supplements.
They are prescribed after obtaining the patient’s anamnesis.
Complete genetic test. Nutrigenetics, Oncological Risk and Prevention Panel.
Genetic tests provide information about the susceptibility to develop pathologies, nervous system disorders, adverse reactions to foods and substances and provide information on the targeted screening to be performed and the possible integration with supplements for a personalized prevention plan.
They involve genetic testing of the metabolism of sugars, sulphites, lactose, gluten, caffeine, alcohol, nickel, salt sensitivity and insulin sensitivity, bioavailability of the absorption of vitamins A, B9, B6, C, D. This part also includes the genetic study of nervous system disorders, important in anxious depressive pathology and eating disorders, in particular the serotonin pathway and the genotype linked to the serotonin transporter and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.
Oncological tests allow a multiple genetic analysis aimed at identifying the predisposition to hereditary tumors. Patients carrying germline mutations on these genes, having inherited one copy of the mutated gene, have a greater predisposition to develop the tumor related to the mutated gene earlier and more easily than the general population. The complete analysis of oncogenes offers the possibility of identifying those at risk of developing a neoplasm related to hereditary mutations, to arrive at an early diagnosis and reduce mortality, by implementing personalized surveillance programs. They address family screening.
The Prevention Panel investigates the following risks: Cardiovascular, Osteoporosis, Hypertension, Thrombophilia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Metabolic Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes.
It is performed through a buccal swab for the analysis of about 750,000 gene variants of about 8000 genes.
The Advanced Lipid-Intelligence Test we perform, is the only one that allows the identification of 31 fatty acids, useful to evaluate indices and reports indicative of the functioning of the metabolic pathways of the person.
This test provides a detailed picture of the balance of fatty acids, provides essential data for the correct evaluation of the metabolic function of the subject and highlights any changes in physiological conditions, in order to allow preventive or curative intervention due to the presence or not of various pathologies related to the Circulatory System(Cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension, dyslipidaemia), Endocrine System (Diabetes, Obesity, metabolic diseases, Thyroiditis), Digestive and respiratory tract , Immune System (eczema, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, alopecia, rheumatoid arthritis), Reproductive System (premenstrual syndrome, female infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome), Nervous System (development of the nervous system in the foetus, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, depression).
It is carried out by collecting a drop of blood, to be placed on special paper, using a lancet.
