You may have seen commercials for companies that provide DNA tests and health reports to the general public, often piggybacking on consumer interest in genealogy and ancestry. You may have even ordered one of their tests for yourself. We appreciate that their efforts have brought the discussion of DNA into the public eye. However, these tests and reports are not medically comprehensive. In other words, they don’t tell the whole story – and when it comes to your health, you don’t want a blurry picture.
Genomics is the study of very small changes in a person’s DNA. Each of us has about 25,000 different genes made up of approximately 3 billion DNA nucleotides or units. Subtle variations in this DNA are not only what make us look different from one another, but also create subtle health differences by changing the instructions for everything our cells make and do; how we make hormones, handle inflammation and what nutrients we need more or less of. When understood, these changes translate to health effects that can be modified, leading to a revolution in potential interventions and treatments of disease.
