This Health DNA Test Analyzes Thousands of Genetic Markers that can influence the genetic predisposition to dozens of pathologies. Our tests provide a large amount of relevant information for your health care.

Our genetic health report is possibly the most comprehensive DNA test on the market.

We analyze more than 720.000 genetic markers. From these we extract the results based on the most prestigious genetic research through complex algorithms.

We study the ancestral roots in DNA. These constitute the genetic inheritance of the person and it serves to power apply these algorithms correctly. The calculation of genetic predisposition can vary based on ethnic origin. For example, the risk of skin cancer for a person of African origins is not calculated the same as that of another of Scandinavian origins. 24Genetics is possibly the only company in Europe that performs this previous analysis of the ancestral roots to correctly apply the algorithms.

Our algorithm also allows us to analyze whether the DNA belongs to a man or a woman.

In this way we can apply the research that best suits each individual.

The reports we provide offer as much practical information as possible from the genetic data available in the test. In the case of many diseases, we report the pathogenic mutations, or the absence of them, of only a part of the genes involved (those that we can see in the test). Which means that said disease may be present in areas that we are not analyzing. The genetic information provided by 24Genetics is not valid for clinical or diagnostic use. If any of your doctors or health professionals are particularly concerned about a mutation detected, they will prescribe a second genetic test for clinical use with which they can confirm these mutations. 24Genetics tests serve, among other things, to bring to light highly relevant information that is normally overlooked.

On this same page you have an example of the report of the health test of 24Genetics.

Genetics give us a lot of information

And the 24Genetics DNA Test offers 7 detailed reports with multiple data from each of those 7 categories. We must not confuse talent or personal characteristics with pathologies or diseases. Specific, our DNA Health Test yields an exclusive health report. Detailing a multitude of diseases and accompanied by drug compatibility information.

With the 24Genetics Health DNA Test, you can have an overview of a large number of pathologies at an affordable price. Thanks to these tests and as a genetic counselor, we can be a valuable approach to understanding your genes. If you need a diagnosis about a specific disease, there are DNA tests that analyze the entire gene or genes involved in that disease or phenotype. These are also valid for clinical use. If you have a family history, we recommend that you consult your doctor or geneticist to study the need for such a test.

With knowledge of DNA, we can prevent various diseases from being transmitted monogenic to our future children.

Some of these diseases may be present in our genes and not have manifested in us. But it is possible that they do manifest themselves in our children and grandchildren. With our DNA Health Test we can identify many of them and act accordingly. There are techniques to prevent some of these diseases from being transmitted to our offspring.

However having our genetic information can also be the first step towards personalized medicine. Each person should receive medical treatments in a different way. Medications that are very effective for some people are not so for others. One of the keys to deciphering what will be the best treatments for each person is in their genes. Our DNA Health Test includes data on genetic predisposition to dozens of drugs. Therefore, it can help your doctor to prescribe the most appropriate drugs. The importance of a genetic advisor like 24Genetics España is essential to carry out your genetic analysis and personalized medicine will arrive.

24Genetics DNA tests are preventive.

They are carried out by analyzing a part of the organism's genetic variants (about 720.000 out of a total of 3.200 million). Therefore, they have no clinical or diagnostic validity. Being predisposed to suffering from a disease or pathology does not mean that it will be suffered with certainty. Many other external (environmental) factors and habits or lifestyle influence. Similarly, a disease for which no predisposition is indicated could eventually develop. Since there may be mutations in gene regions that we did not analyze. Thus, At 24Genetics we always recommend consulting with a medical professional or geneticist to deepen in certain areas. Especially when there is a family history. And perform a diagnostic DNA test, in case professionals advise it.

What will you find in the 24Genetics Health Report?

We analyze your genetic predisposition to hundreds of diseases, grouped into the following types:

Complex Diseases: GWAS

For this part of our report we applied GWAS publications, a type of study that compares the DNA markers of people with a disease with people without this disease in order to identify genetic differences. These studies can be very useful for prevention and early diagnosis, since not being a diagnostic tool, it tells us what we should be more attentive to.
It is important to bear in mind that in complex diseases many factors influence, genetics are only a part; lifestyle, diet, etc ... are in many cases the most influential.

Complex diseases: mutations

In this section we analyze the mutations of the most important genes from the oncological point of view. We are specifically looking for mutations reported as pathogens in the main scientific communities.

Biomarkers, biometrics and traits

In this section we use, again, the GWAS statistical analyzes to calculate your genetic predisposition to have abnormal levels of certain metabolic parameters.

Hereditary diseases

We analyze the genetic mutations that can cause hereditary diseases that can be transmitted to your future children. Some of them can be a carrier and never have suffered it, but there is a risk that our future offspring will suffer it. They are mostly monogenetic diseases.
Carrying out a genetic test for hereditary diseases of both the future father and the future mother before conceiving the baby is the smartest move to minimize the chances that our children suffer from this type of disease. In the event that your family has diseases of this type, conducting genetic tests is very important. With the data in hand, a geneticist will be able to give you the guidelines on how to act. If you want to know more about this topic, read our blog article “How genetics can help you have healthier children”.

Pharmacogenetics

We will analyze the mutations that predispose us to make certain drugs feel better or worse, and this will help our doctors to choose the most suitable for us. Your pharmacological analysis will be your first step to a personalized medicine.

24genetics genetic tests are not valid for clinical or diagnostic use. In the event that your doctor finds a mutation found in our reports relevant, the usual practice is for him to prescribe a specific diagnostic genetic test with which to corroborate said mutations.

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW CAN I DO THIS GENETIC TEST?

It is really simple. You will receive a DNA kit to place a small amount of saliva. Click here to view a video before using the kit. After following the simple instructions, send the sample back to us. In a specialized laboratory, we will extract the DNA from the saliva that you have sent us. We will carry out a process in which we can read what is written in about 700.000 markers in your DNA. After a complex computer analysis, our algorithms apply the latest genetic studies. This is how the report that we put in your hands is generated.

WHAT DOES THE 24GENETICS GENETIC TEST CONSIST OF?

It's very simple. We will send a kit to your home. In it you can deposit a little of your saliva following some simple instructions. Once the kit comes back to us, we will extract the DNA from your cells. We will read about 720.000 genetic markers or polymorphisms on high-tech sequencers. Then our exclusive algorithms will analyze your DNA. Next, they will apply the most relevant scientific knowledge to be able to generate the reports that you have contracted.

CAN I MAKE DRASTIC CHANGES IN MY HEALTH TREATMENTS ON MYSELF DUE TO THE RESULTS OF THIS TEST?

Our reports provide data on the genetic predispositions of your body. But there are many other external factors, environmental or habits that influence it. Therefore, we view our reports as preventive, not diagnostic. Our recommendation is to always consult with medical professionals with any questions that may arise from your genetic report. Therefore, the answer is no. You should not make major changes without validation from a professional.

IS THIS TEST AVAILABLE IN MY COUNTRY?

We send our DNA kits for free to any country in the world. You can choose return shipping by mail (you would have to send it to us) or express collection (it may have an additional cost depending on the product and the country). We have many warehouses around the world, so we will ship your order from the closest possible point. The United States, Spain or France always have free return shipping. In addition, some of our packs enjoy free express shipping worldwide.

ARE ALL THE GENETIC TESTS OF THE SAME QUALITY?

Our genetic test is possibly the most complete and of the highest quality on the market.

On the one hand, the quality of the technology used in DNA sequencing must be taken into account. From the saliva kit to the sequencers. At 24Genetics we use the best Illumina sequencing technology in Europe. Each and every one of the components used in our services are the highest quality available on the market.

And, on the other hand, there is the quality and quantity of information that we can offer in our reports. We are the only company capable of offering 7 different reports based on a genetic test. These are our reports: Ancestors, Nutrigenetics, Health, Pharmacogenetics, Talent and Personality, Skincare and Sport. Each of them are benchmarks in the sector for the quality and quantity of information provided. For example, we are the only ones capable of displaying biometric data, complex diseases and applying different algorithms depending on the sex and ethnicity of our clients.

In summary, we can say that our genetic tests are two years ahead of the genetic tests available on the market.

 

DOES EVERYTHING DEPEND ON MY GENES?

No. The body responds to a whole series of conditions. Our genes are certainly an important parameter. But lifestyle, such as exercise and diet, and many other circumstances influence our body. Without a doubt, knowing yourself well helps to treat the body in the most appropriate way. And this is what you can get from genetics. More knowledge for you and for the professionals who take care of your health.

WHY IS THIS GENETIC HEALTH PREVENTION TEST BETTER THAN THE OTHERS?

24Genetics genetic tests are considered the best in their category basically due to the quantity and quality of the information. You just have to compare the number of sections of our test with any other on the market and you will see that we provide much more data. And not only with respect to diseases, it also provides biometric predispositions, biomarkers, pharmacogenetics and much more relevant information for your health care, data that the rest of the genetic health tests on the market do not have. Furthermore, our algorithms are two years ahead of the rest because we apply more scientifically validated research than the rest and apply it more intelligently. Our algorithm chooses which studies are applicable to you, depending on whether you are a man or a woman, and only if the study is validated in a population similar to yours (Asian, European, etc). And in the event that there are several consolidated studies on the same pathology, our algorithm is able to combine them to offer you the most complete and useful personalized genetic information for your doctors. If you want to know all the reasons why our genetic tests are considered the best on the market, click here.

WHAT IS THIS TEST BASED ON?

This test is based on thousands of genetic studies recognized and accepted internationally by the scientific community. When there is a certain level of consensus, scientific studies are made public in certain databases through institutions and scientific bodies. Our genetic reports are made by applying these studies to the genetic data of each client. This is done using a complex algorithm developed by 24Genetics.

WHAT SPECIFICALLY WILL I GET BY TAKING THE HEALTH TEST?

We will send you a detailed and personalized report to the email you provided when registering your DNA kit. In addition, if you request it, we can send you at any time, not only when placing your order, your electronic file of raw data, which contains your genetic map.

WHAT CAN I DO TO KEEP MY REPORT UP-TO-DATE?

When we design a new feature for inclusion in one of our reports, we pre-test a variety of tests before making it public. At that time, we will let you know through our communication channels.

WHO CAN TAKE THIS TEST?

Anyone, regardless of age, can take our genetic test. If the test is to be performed on a baby or an elderly person, you can detail it when placing the order. We will send you a special kit that facilitates the collection of the saliva sample. In the case of minors, the authorization of the parent or guardian is necessary.

IS THIS TEST VALID FOR CLINICAL OR DIAGNOSTIC USE?

No, this test is not valid for clinical or diagnostic use. In the event that your doctor considers that any mutation reflected in our report is relevant to your health, he or she may prescribe a test with clinical validity to confirm the pathology in question. 24Genetics tests are preventive and their main utility is to alert you to genetic issues that are normally overlooked.

IF MY REPORT SAYS THAT I HAVE A HIGH GENETIC PREDISPOSITION TO SUFFER A CERTAIN DISEASE, DOES IT MEAN THAT I WILL SUFFER FROM IT BEFORE OR AFTER?

People are our genetics and our experiences.

Apart from your genes, there are many other environmental and internal factors that influence the development or not of a disease. So you can be genetically prone to a pathology and never develop it due to environmental issues, health habits, lifestyle ... But you can also have no predisposition and suffer a certain disease at a time in your life.

In addition, depending on the pathology, genetics can have a greater or lesser influence on the appearance or development of a disease.

The knowledge of our genetics allows health professionals to be able to carry out their work with much more information. And in addition, it allows you to design prevention plans that can make a difference.

IF WITH RESPECT TO A PARTICULAR DISEASE, MY REPORT SAYS THAT I AM NOT PRONE TO IT, DOES IT MEAN THAT I AM NOT AT RISK?

Most diseases do not depend only on our genes. They also depend on innumerable internal and external factors that can cause them. Also, our test has partial information about your genome. We are not sequencing your entire genome, but only part of it. It is possible that we are only analyzing a percentage of the genes that may be involved in a certain pathology. Therefore, it does not exclude the possibility that you may carry other mutations associated with said pathology in other gene regions that we are not analyzing or that are not currently known.

There are genetic tests for clinical or diagnostic use, which analyze all the genes involved in a certain pathology or disease and that a medical service can prescribe if it deems it appropriate. And, of course, you always have to count on multiple environmental factors. Well, these can also have a high degree of influence on the possibility of disease development.

Our tests are not valid for clinical or diagnostic use. Therefore, when in doubt, we always recommend consulting with your doctors so that they are the ones who prescribe the appropriate clinical genetic tests.

I HAVE RECEIVED A MARROW TRANSPLANT, COULD THIS AFFECT MY TEST RESULTS?

The results of the genetic test may be altered, so we do not recommend its performance.

DOES MY GENETIC PREDISPOSITION TO HAVE CERTAIN PATHOLOGIES MEAN THAT MY FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE IT TOO?

Each person's genetics are unique. Therefore, we always recommend that you consult with your clinical reference service for decisions to be made regarding health. However, in genetics, many of the patterns that are expressed are often related to those of close relatives. So it would be usual for the reports to be quite similar. But keep in mind that multiple external factors also influence the development or not of a disease. Therefore, the probability of suffering from it will be very different among relatives with different lifestyles, health habits, place of residence, etc ...
