What are the Benefits of Genetic Testing?

Within the last decade, the science of genetics has exploded, providing a massive amount of data on DNA. Genetic testing gives us a glimpse into our DNA and what we’ve inherited from our families – both the good and the bad. The results of these genetic tests can tell you if you are at greater risk of developing specific diseases and conditions, giving you the knowledge you need in order to take preventative steps towards a diagnosis and management. Genetic testing gives you the power to maintain your well-being.

What type of Genetic Testing is offered by InVite?

InVite offers six types of genetic testing. Here is what each genetic test is and what it can do for you.

Weight Management

Weight management is a challenge for many and not all diets and lifestyle trends are for everyone. This Weight Management Panel takes the guesswork out of determining the right diet plan by going straight to genetics for the answers. This test provides analysis of genes highly associated with weight gain and elevated body mass index (BMI). Using your results, dietary and lifestyle recommendations that are scientifically supporting to help get the fastest results without all the trial-and-error of dieting will be provided for you.

Cardiac Health

Heart disease is a leading contributor to both obesity and mortality, with over 17 million deaths occurring annually worldwide. This genetic panel gives insight into how a patient’s genetic predisposition to cardiac problems can help healthcare providers optimize diagnosis and treatment.

Methyltetrahydrofolate, MTHFR, is a gene that produces an enzyme involved in the processing of folate and regulation of homocysteine in the body. Folate is a critical nutrient involved in methylation, DNA synthesis, and amino acid metabolism. Impaired folate metabolism due to MTHFR enzyme inactivity or a low folate level, results in elevated plasma homocysteine. Homocysteine is an amino acid that is a cardiovascular biomarker in the blood. High levels may lead to a variety of health issues, including cardiovascular problems, migraine headaches, poor memory and brain function, age-related memory/mood problems, bone health, chronic inflammation and more.

The COMT gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called catechol-O-methyltransferase. In the brain, catechol-O-methyltransferase helps break down chemical messengers called neurotransmitters which are responsible for conducting signals from one nerve cell to another. Catechol-O-methyltransferase is particularly important in an area at the front of the brain called the prefrontal cortex, which organizes and coordinates information from other parts of the brain. This region is involved with personality, planning, inhibition of behaviors, abstract thinking, emotion, and working (short-term) memory. To function efficiently, the prefrontal cortex requires signaling by neurotransmitters such as dopamine and norepinephrine. Catechol-O-methyltransferase helps maintain appropriate levels of these neurotransmitters in this part of the brain.

Celiac Disease is a chronic gluten-intolerance that occurs in genetically predisposed individuals. In gluten-sensitive individuals, the ingestion of gluten causes chronic inflammation of the small intestinal mucosa leading to villous atrophy and nutrient malabsorption. This Celiac Disease genetic testing can assess the genetic risk of developing this condition.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory arthritis that affects multiple synovial lined joints. RA is associated with a number of co-morbidities, particularly in the cardiovascular system. This genetic testing can contribute to a better understanding of the origin of the disease for improved diagnosis and treatment.
