Testing 10 Genes
DNA Oestrogen includes 10 genes involved in oestrogen biosynthesis, oestrogen metabolism, and phase I and phase II detoxification. The
results provide unique information to guide personalised diet, lifestyle, hormone and nutraceutical recommendations.
The importance of both oestrogen and progesterone in breast cancer development is well established. However, considerable inter-individual variability has been observed in carcinogen metabolism, metabolism of steroid hormones, and phase I and phase II detoxification.
Variations in genes involved in these biological processes help identify a sub-population of women with higher lifetime exposure to oestrogens, oestrogen metabolites and other carcinogens.
Understanding an individuals’ genetic variability will allow for targeted diet, lifestyle and hormone intervention.
A DNA collection is made by scraping the inside of the cheek with a cotton swab, collecting saliva and cells. The samples are then sent to Nordic Laboratories in secure packaging. Analysis is complete about three weeks after Nordic Laboratories has received the sample.
