Diseases

The whole plan of our organism is encoded in our genes. The genes determine the structure and the functioning of our body. If we inherit a significant error in the genetic code, then we will develop a genetic disorder. Discovering such genetic flaws is what doctors nowadays do. Our tendencies for developing many diseases are also encoded in our genes. Environmental factors pay an important role with the development of such diseases. That is why, in most cases, we can influence how these diseases progress. The search for important genetic factors and assessing risks for developing a certain disease is what GenePlanet does. With our information you can change your lifestyle and prevent developing a disease you are most prone to.

With the help of a personal genetic analysis individuals can discover their tendency towards disease development in comparison to the average population. For example, if 10% of the total population are affected by a certain disease and the individual is the carrier of a specific genetic makeup that determines a 4x higher risk for the same disease this means that it can be expected that on average 40% of people with such a genetic makeup will develop the mentioned disease during their lifetime. By receiving the personalized genetic information and results each individual also received important information about the basics of each disease as such, how different genetic predispositions influence the development of a certain condition, on which part of the chromosomes the relevant genes are present and much more. This information in connection with preventive advice and medical recommendations is of invaluable help in terms of prevention and greatly increase the likelihood that a certain disease will not develop or is discovered at an early stage, when successful treatment is much more successful.
