COVID-19 Tests



With the development of civilization and technological advances, the length of human life has increased considerably. There are also more hazards caused by environmental factors that lead to illnesses or disturbances in the human body. An irregular or unhealthy lifestyle is mainly responsible for the emergence of cardiovascular diseases and chronic diseases.

A number of risks and vulnerabilities are genetically determined and an appropriate study allows identification of individual predispositions of the organism in question to a specific disorder. By knowing the results of such a study, you can change your lifestyle accordingly and take preventive prophylaxis against illness.

Type II diabetes mellitus

Type II diabetes mellitus is a long-term metabolic disorder. It is characterized by high levels of sugar in the blood and impaired insulin secretion. Glucose, instead of being transported to cells where energy is needed, accumulates in the bloodstream. The primary cause of diabetes varies depending on the type, but it can always lead to excess sugar in the blood.

What are the symptoms?

Classical symptoms of diabetes are frequent urination, increased thirst, increased hunger and weight loss. Other symptoms that are often present in the diagnosis include blurred vision, irritability, peripheral neuropathy, recurrent vaginal infections and fatigue. It should be remembered that at the first stage of development the disease does not give obvious symptoms, so it is important to monitor the health of the person with increased risk of developing.

What genes are analysed in the study and what do they influence?

Gene CDKAL1 encodes a protein whose function is to send a signal to the beta cells of the pancreas, responsible for the production of insulin, about the occurrence of glucotoxicity-too high sugar level. The activity of the protein is regulated by glucose and can affect the processes of beta cells, and its hyperactivity lead to their degeneration. Gene studies have shown that its mutations are associated with type II diabetes mellitus. Changes in the CDKAL1 gene cause the pancreas-produced insulin to be less responsive to the glucose supplied with food and is secreted in smaller amounts.

Who is recommended to perform the test?

Diabetes is a serious disease leading to a number of complications, so it is worth checking its risk and early to take prophylaxis. The study is especially recommended for people with a history of illness.

Can I donate this study to someone?'

You can transfer/donate selected studies to another person. You just need to enter the box names for each of the selected products when completing your order after entering your shipping address. By giving different names of boxes (e.g. 1-my, 2-for-mum) You can create test kits for both yourself and the people you want to donate GeneMe study to.

It is also worth remembering that:

Each successive test within one SWAT (i.e. one box) is awarded for 50% of the price.
We send your entire order to one of the specified addresses to send the boxes in different places to separate orders.
