The Wellness by Science™ tests use qualitative genotyping to detect select clinically relevant variants in the genomic DNA of humans from saliva for the purpose of reporting and interpreting genetic health risks and reporting carrier status.  It is not intended to diagnose any disease.  Your ethnicity may affect the relevance of each report and how your genetic health risk results are interpreted.  Each genetic health risk report describes if a person has variants associated with a higher risk of developing a disease, but does not describe a person’s overall risk of developing the disease.  The test is not intended to tell you anything about your current state of health, or to be used to make medical decisions, including whether or not you should take a medication, how much of a medication you should take, or determine any treatment.  Our carrier status reports can be used to determine carrier status, but cannot determine if you have two copies of any genetic variant.  These carrier reports are not intended to tell you anything about your risk for developing a disease in the future, the health of your fetus, or your newborn child's risk of developing a particular disease later in life. For certain conditions, we provide a single report that includes information on both carrier status and genetic health risk.  Results should be confirmed in a clinical setting before taking any medical action.  For important information and limitations regarding each genetic health risk and carrier status report, visit www.wellnessbyscience.com

 

Genetic Health Risk reports tell you about genetic variants associated with increased risk for certain health conditions. They do not diagnose cancer or any other health conditions or determine medical action.

Having a risk variant does not mean you will definitely develop a health condition. Similarly, you could still develop the condition even if you don't have a variant detected. It is possible to have other genetic risk variants not included in these reports.

Factors like lifestyle and environment can also affect whether a person develops most health conditions. Our reports cannot tell you about your overall risk for these conditions, and they cannot determine if you will or will not develop a condition.

These reports do not replace visits to a healthcare professional. Consult with a healthcare professional for help interpreting and using genetic results. Results should not be used to make medical decisions.
