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.
Hypertension is a complex disease comprised of both genetic and environmental factors. It consists of a steady or periodic increase in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Her course is very often latinous and ill can be unaware of his condition for many years. The disease is characterized by a high incidence and development of complications.
The first apparent symptoms of hypertension are headache and dizziness, trouble sleeping, decreased physical and mental performance, as well as sweating, redness of the face and feeling of palpitations. Untreated disease leads to serious complications, including myocardial infarction, kidney failure, stroke or aneural formation.
In the genetic substrate of the development of hypertension we can distinguish two genes. The first analysis in this context is the NOS3 gene. It is responsible for the formation of nitric oxide in the body. The molecules of this gas are involved in processes such as shrinking the walls of blood vessels or lowering the pressure. Research suggests that the change in the construction of the NOS3 gene contributes to the reduction of nitric oxide levels in the body, which increases the risk of hypertension. The second gene that increases the risk of high blood pressure is the ACE gene. It controls the production of an angiotensin converting enzyme, which is involved in regulating blood pressure and electrolytic balance. Changes in the gene are associated with a change in the level of the enzyme in the body, which increases the likelihood of fluctuations in blood pressure, the development of diseases of the cardiovascular system and can lead to changes in the construction of vessels and the development of Atherosclerosis.
The study is recommended for all people who complain about malaise or want to take better care of their health. The result allows you to determine whether you need to change your lifestyle and consult with your doctor. It is worth remembering that people exposed to hypertension, more frequent prophylactic examinations are recommended to monitor the disease.
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.
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.
