A majority of breast cancer occurs in women with no family history of it, but oestrogen gene testing can assist in identifying at-risk individuals and thereby lessen the risk of undetected cancers. DNA Oestrogen tests for gene variants that have been shown to have an impact on how oestrogen is processed in the body and if the processing of oestrogen and related compounds is efficient and healthy.
Research shows that an increased lifetime exposure to oestrogen is a strong risk factor in the development of breast cancer.
The DNA Oestrogen test guides the personalisation of diet, hormone and nutritional supplement recommendations to improve oestrogen metabolism. Not only does DNA Oestrogen benefit men and women who suffer from numerous oestrogen-dominant conditions, but the test is particularly important for woman considering:
hormone replacement therapy,
in-vitro fertilisation, or
who have been diagnosed with oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.
DNA Oestrogen reports on the following areas:
Variations in key genes involved in metabolizing oestrogen and related compounds
Intervention strategies for carriers of high-risk genetic variations
Personal risk factors associated with HRT, Oral contraceptives, bio-identical supplementation and in vitro fertilization
Practitioners use DNA Oestrogen test results to prescribe individualised nutritional and lifestyle interventions to mitigate breast cancer risk in women with high-risk genetic profiles.
