A DVT is a blood clot that forms deep within the veins of your body, typically your legs. This type of clot will typically go asymptomatic – unknown and undetected for some period of time. Sequencing your clotting factor genes may help you prevent a deadly blood clot. Learn how the PhosphorusONE test can help you to better understand and mitigate your risk of developing a Deep Venous Thromboembolism (DVT) – a type of deadly blood clot.
September 29th is World Heart Day. Created by theWorld Heart Federation, it’s a day that aims to raise global awareness around Cardiovascular disease (CVD), which includes heart disease and strokes. Cardiovascular disease is responsible for nearly half ofall noncommunicable diseases deaths making it the world’s number one killer. Therefore, World Heart Day is an opportunity for us to consider not just our current heart health but what role genetics may play in predicting if we have any propensity for heart disease or stroke in the future.
The PhosphorusONE test looks at the most exhaustive list of genes known to cause inherited cancer syndromes. Understanding whether or not you or a loved one carries a mutation in these genes can help catch cancer before it’s too late.
The PhosphorusONE test is the first genetic test that examines genes responsible for various forms of infertility and can help guide decisions on everything from egg freezing to fertility treatments.
The most recent research shows that genetic causes underpin at least 10 – 15% of the causes of infertility. Understanding earlier in life whether or not you have a genetic risk factor can help you make a more informed decision as to how, and even when you approach having a child.
