Disease Prevention Panel: Understand Genetic Risk Factors, Plan Health Care

YouTube video

Every human being is unique and genetically different from others. This is reflected in appearance, special talents, and personality, but also in the genetic predisposition to various diseases, such as tumors or cardiovascular diseases. If you know your genetic risk factors, you can actively contribute to preventing or delaying the onset of a disease or to alleviating its symptoms.

Genetic risk factors play an important role in many common diseases, including tumor and cardiovascular diseases. However, an individual genetic predisposition to a certain disease doesn‘t need to be an inevitable fate. Other influential environmental factors – such as lifestyle, nutrition, and exercise – can also influence whether or not a genetic disease will manifest.

The results can lead to recommendations as intensive early detection programs, e.g. for cancer, change of lifestyle or drug recommendations, for example for prevention of thrombosis during long-distance flights. Early identification of genetic risk factors and timely intervention can prevent or delay the onset or progression of a disease.
