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.

Stress

Stress is the body's response to all sorts of emergencies. His mechanisms evolved in the process of evolution and were supposed to help defend against danger. Although its sources have changed in the 21ST century, the body's reactions remained unchanged. Stimuli causing stress reactions and tolerance of stress are different for each of us. The genes that define the amount of "stress hormones" that we produce are of great influence on this differentiation.

Stress hormones and their effects on the body?

One of the first incoming associations to the head when thinking about stress is adrenalin. It is the hormone responsible for regulating blood glucose levels. It affects the pressure increase and accelerates the work of the heart. The other hormones produced in stressful situations are: dopamine that influences the coordination and secretion of prolactin and oxytocin, which affects muscle spasms. Raising their levels for a short time stimulates and oxygenates the body. However, prolonged stress can lead to a disruption of the hormonal economy, resulting in digestive problems, cardiovascular diseases and fertility problems. Deficiencies of these hormones are dangerous to health.

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

The COMT1 gene encodes the production of an enzyme involved in the disabling of activity and degradation of m.in neurotransmitters. Dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline. Changes in the gene determine how the body responds to stressors. Depending on your mutation, "stress hormones" persist in the body for longer or shorter periods. The second gene that influences stress is OXTR, which encodes information about the protein acting as a receptor for oxytocin. Oxytocin receptors are present in the central nervous system and regulate a variety of behaviors, including stress and anxiety. The OXTR gene variant depends on greater immunity or vulnerability, level of empathy or general satisfaction.

Who is recommended to perform the test?

A stress-prone study will help determine the genetic predisposition to produce "stress hormones" and give guidance for further research. The result will tell you how to change your lifestyle to adjust hormonal levels. They are recommended especially for people who plan to enlarge their families and who want to take care of themselves better.

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.
