We test only preventable and treatable conditions. Our service is for scientific, educational and nutritional information only and is not intended to diagnose, cure or treat any disease, disorder or condition.

Example 1 : Lactose intolerance

What is lactose intolerance ?

Any trouble when drinking milk or eating cheese? Many people do. The sugar "lactose" contained in the milk causes this issue. Your body breaks down this sugar through an enzyme called lactase. When you are a baby, this lactase enzyme is turned on. After this period of time, the levels start decreasing and with it, a decreased capacity to digest large quantities of milk-based products. But some individuals still produce lactase enzyme throughout their life. That's why they can drink/eat milk-based products without any uncomfortable side-effects. The local frequency of this lactase persistence may vary between 100 & 0 percent in different populations across the globe. A genetic variant controls whether the lactase protein is turned off or on as a person grows older.

The production of lactase enzyme is determined entirely by our DNA

Example 2 : Parkinson's Disease

What is Parkinson's Disease ?

Parkinson's disease is a rare disease of the brain's motor-system mainly caused by an impairment of dopamine producing cells. Approximately 1.5 million Americans have this condition. The main symptoms are trembling in the face, legs, arms, hands, and jaw; impaired coordination and balance; and stiffness of the trunk & limbs; slowed movement. These symptoms usually hit people over <50 years old and come on gradually, although there are rare forms that progress more quickly and strike at a younger age. Though very little is known about the genetics of Parkinson's, mutations in a gene known as LRRK2 have been found to greatly increase a person's likelihood of developing the condition.

LRRK2 gene increase rates of the disease

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are one of the most common known genetic causes of Parkinson's disease (PD).
More than 50 variants are known in the LRRK2 gene. Several of these have been associated with PD. This variant, rs34637584, also known as the G2019S mutation, is the best-studied LRRK2 SNP related to Parkinson's in individuals with European ancestry.

Parkinson's is a fairly rare disease. The average person has a 1-2% chance of developing the disease during his or her lifetime. The chance that a person with the G2019S mutation will develop Parkinson's is much higher than average and increases with age. One recent study found that people with the G2019S mutation have a 28% chance of developing Parkinson's by the age of 59, 51% by the age of 69 and 74% by the age of 79. However, estimates of PD risk due to the G2019S mutation vary greatly. While it is well established that the mutation's effect is very strong, there is no consensus about its exact magnitude.

Of all people with Parkinson's, few have the G2019S mutation, but it is present at high levels in patients from some ethnic groups. Up to 40% of people with PD who are of Arab-Berber ancestry and 20% of Ashkenazi Jewish people with PD have this mutation. Scientists do not know why only some people with the G2019S mutation get PD. There may be unknown effects due to other genes or environmental factors.

Did you know ?
Angelina Jolie had a preventive double mastectomy in 2013 after learning she carries the BRCA1 gene mutation. This gene variant increases by 87% the odds for breast cancer. Such DNA variants can be inherited, and they widely increase the odds of cancer due to the fact that the altered gene(s) can't repair efficiently any damaged cells, thus, allowing them to create a tumor.
