At Lyfe Medical Wellness, we offer four genetic tests to assist in identifying health risks that can lead towards preventative therapies and lifestyle changes. These are:

Preventative Genetic Testing

The BASICgen test is our preventative genetic test and it allows for an overview of your genetic health functionality, including immune defense, vitamin requirements, lactose metabolism and intolerance. It also picks up your carbohydrate and lipid digestion levels, as well as homocysteine quantities. Unhealthy levels of homocysteine in the blood can result in heart disease and stroke.

As the most common cancer in males, the PROSTATEgen is our preventative genetic test and is helpful for males who are concerned about prostate cancer, particularly if there is a family history of this disease. This test checks for five genetic mutations that can play an important role in the early stages of cancer, as well as your dihydrotestosterone levels due to an increase of testosterone in your body. The PROSTATEgen test is recommended for males over 65.

Our FEMgen test analyzes genetic mutations that are involved in the breakdown of estrogens in the body, assisting with early evaluation.
