According to research, neuropsychiatric disorders account for up to 25% of all disability-adjusted life years. Whilst the heritability of these mental disorders is significant, environmental factors also factor into their development. Genetic variations involved in key biological processes that contribute toward the risk of development of mental health disorders may give insights to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
By understanding an individual’s unique genetic makeup and predispositions, healthcare clinical professionals can better in developing strategies for individuals suffering from, or at risk of, mental health disorders.
The DNA Mind Report Provides:
Identification of the level of impact of any genetic variants
An explanation of their impact on the specific biochemical area
An explanation of each area’s impact on mental health
Taking the test may help you, and/or your patients, understand ways that may avoid the onset of a range of neurological disorders.
The DNA Mind test analyses 30 genes which have been shown to have significant associations with key mental health disorders, and reports on the following areas:
Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, cognitive decline
A risk for alcohol, nicotine, cannabis & opioid dependence; Psychosis response from cannabis use; eating disorders (binge eating)
