- Comprehensive Genetic Panel Test
- Instead of doing multiple individual tests for certain diseases after symptoms have already presented themselves, genetic panel testing provides a comprehensive look at a patient’s genes. Just as the genes we inherit from our parents help determine our physical attributes, they also contribute greatly to the types of diseases we are susceptible to. Certain health issues like high blood pressure, heart disease, as well as many forms of cancer run in families. Many of them have signs or symptoms that possess certain identifiable genetic markers. Most genes are like light switches, that is you have the potential to produce what the gene is programmed to do, however, they can be turned on or off with diet, supplements, avoiding toxins and other lifestyle factors. They are modifiable however you have to know what genes you have and how to turn on those that benefit your health and turn off those that may cause illness.
