DNA Oestrogen® tests for genetic variations to provide insight into oestrogen metabolism, helping to inform precise health strategies that can reduce the risk of oestrogen-related health conditions.
DNA Oestrogen® analyses 11 different genes that are involved in the metabolism and biosynthesis of oestrogen, as well as phase I and II detoxification. By identifying any genetic variation, this test can help to guide personal lifestyle, nutrition and supplement recommendations to improve oestrogen metabolism, which in turn can reduce the risk of breast cancer and other oestrogen-dominant conditions.
Research shows that long-term exposure to high oestrogen levels can increase the risk of breast cancer. This test can help to identify genetic predispositions that affect how oestrogen is metabolised, so individuals can address oestrogen-dominant conditions through diet, lifestyle and supplements to support healthy oestrogen metabolism.
This test requires four blood spots (collected on one card) from a single finger prick.
