What goals are my results recommendations designed to address?
The recommendations you find in HealthCodes DNA’s products are written for every individual to find a baseline approach to a personalized healthy lifestyle. These recommendations are used to maximize overall wellness and quality of life. In order to use your DNA information for sports-specific lifestyle planning, we recommend a consultation with one of our wellness partners who is an expert in your sport of choice. If you have received your results from us and need a referral to a wellness professional who can consult you on implementing a sports-specific healthy lifestyle plan, please contact us at [email protected].
How accurate are my results?
In a DNA analysis, there are three steps that can affect result accuracy, and we are committed to making sure that you receive the most accurate results possible at each step in the process.
First, your DNA sample is collected in our saliva collection device. We use DNA saliva capture tubes instead of cheek swabs to maximize DNA quantity and quality for use in our analysis. This high-yield DNA sample is then read in our clinically-certified and compliant (CLIA/CAP) genomics laboratory, processing your DNA using the highest quality control standards and measures available.
Once we have read your DNA, your results will include those biomarkers which have been validated in scientific research studies and indicate a statistically significant correlation to between a biomarker result and an individual’s trait. Statistical significance occurs when the result is indicated in >95% of those studied. Furthermore, we ensure that each biomarker result is reproduced across multiple studies to further confirm each biomarker’s validity as it pertains to your health.
Lastly, our automated report building system ensures that your results are built with 100% precision each time.
The end result of this three-stage process is an analysis you can be truly confident is of the highest level accuracy, compliance, and quality available today. We are continually improving our processes with the latest scientific and technological advances available to ensure that product accuracy and customer satisfaction remain a top priority at HealthCodes DNA.
How will my genetic information be used?
Your full DNA sequence is not analyzed by our service. Of the small percentage of your DNA we do read, it will be used anonymously for research purposes to develop therapies, treatments and cures. Your personal information is fully anonymized and will not be tied to your genetic information. Additionally, no employer or health insurance agency will be able to access or use your info against you, as you are protected by the 2008 Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).
What if I find something unfavorable on my report?
The information you receive through our service will provide you with knowledge to guide and improve your lifestyle. There are currently no disease assessments included in our analysis. For all clinical assessments and advice, please seek a medical professional. Our service is used for educational, informational, and research purposes only.
Should I perform the DNA analysis more than once to track my progress?
No! Your DNA is stable and your personalized results will continue to inform your healthy choices for life.
Why should I choose your DNA test?
Other DNA wellness services will not provide you with the same level of insight our 3-Panel Analysis offers. Typical DNA wellness tests only offer a reading of approximately 6-10 traits per test. The 3-Panel Analysis measures 40 traits across three sections per test (14 Wellness Panel, 16 Nutrition Panel, 10 Fitness Panel). Simply put, you will receive more wellness insights per dollar spent using our services. Furthermore, not only do we offer the most wellness insights in the world using our fully customized technology, you will not find any competitor DNA wellness company committed to delivering these insights in a beautifully yet simplistically designed, eye-catching 28-page healthy lifestyle plan that includes easy-to-follow and actionable steps you can take to immediately begin implementing your unique healthy lifestyle. What’s more, we print and deliver your personalized results book to fully ensure you commit to becoming your best self every day.
