When we talk about preventive medicine, we cannot deny immense improvements achieved in DNA examination.
Genetic testing has allowed us to analyze our bodies in so far unimaginable ways and foresee the possible health problems and conditions. Once we thought DNA testing will be the thing of the future, so we are quite happy to see such advancements actually available in our present.
Genetic Testing can reveal important details of your family’s medical history,<?strong> thus helping to highlight any potential susceptibility to a wide range of conditions, including many different kinds of cancer.
Dubai London Clinic in cooperation with the next generation genetic company, Qlu Health, brings you the opportunity to face your chronic health conditions through lifestyle optimization and the power of genetics. Their 4 simple DNA tests will help you understand the nature of your genes and optimize health, lifestyle and disease prevention efforts.
We are now presenting you the 4 DNA tests and their fields of usage:
Your genes can tell you what you are and what you are not supposed to eat. NutriQlu test is a simple cheek swab that will help you understand your body’s response to nutritional intake. The report received comes with the ideal diet plan, predispositions for key nutrient deficiencies and suggestions for the type of exercise most suitable for you.
The test checks 45 genetic markers and the report covers 6 main categories:
- Weight Loss/Weight Management (testing energy balance, protein, total fat, metabolic rate, saturated and unsaturated fat)
- Fitness & Physical Activity (motivation to exercise, exercise behavior, power and strength, endurance, pain and injury risk)
- Nutrient Metabolism (vitamin A (Beta-Carotene), vitamin B12, vitamin C, D, E, folate, iron, calcium)
- Eating Habits (fat taste perception, sugar preferences, snacking, starch)
- Cardiometabolic Health (caffeine, diabetes risk (Glycemic Index), sodium and omega 3)
- Food Intolerance (lactose, gluten)
What hides in your gut? GutQlu can tell you by providing a personalized profile of your gut microbiome, identifying and quantifying a wide array of organisms in the digestive system which directly impact your health. The personalized report points to common illnesses, and helps you improve the gut flora through simple lifestyle changes.
Suggestions commonly revolve around making dietary changes such as increasing the dietary intake of prebiotic rich foods such as asparagus and bananas, or adding a specific probiotic supplement like Lactobacillus plantarum. This test can also be combined with NutriQlu to provide life changing improvement in health and wellbeing.
This test will help you win a fight over such diseases and conditions as:
- Inflammatory bowel diseases
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Celiac disease
- Crohn’s disease
- Vitamin processing
- Lipid levels
- Skin rashes
- Joint inflammation
Cardiac problems are among the most common health problems which lead to severe health threats if not recognized in time. That’s why CardiacQlu is one of the most powerful tests in Qlu’s portfolio, often combined with NutriQlu to create a more comprehensive health picture.
Your report provides genetic analysis and suggestions on the following conditions:
- Coronary artery disease
- Myocardial infarction
- Ischemic stroke
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm
- Atrial fibrillation
- Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease
- Diabetes mellitus
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Congestive heart failure
Identifying cancer at an early, more treatable stage is the critical point in fighting against it. This swab test provides you with precious opportunity to check if you have an increased predisposition for a number of cancers associated with genetic mutations.
CancerQlu is a NGS (next Generation Sequencing) test that is the most advanced technology for gene analysis. NGS looks at the entire target genetic sequence for any variances that could indicate illness. The process also commonly reviews genetic material from multiple cells illustrating how prevalent the genetic variants are within the patient.
Your report provides genetic analysis for the following 32 markers associated with cancer:
- Adrenocortical (adrenal)
- Astrocytoma (brain)
- Hemangioblastoma (brain)
- Hepatobiliary (liver)
- Lynch syndrome
- Medulloblastoma (brain)
- Sebaceous (skin)
- Small intestine
