About genetic testing
Genetic testing is the process of getting parts of your DNA analyzed in order to detect the presence or absence of a particular sequence of genes. Your DNA sequences can indicate a wide range of traits, characteristics, and even disease risks. For instance, the color of your hair or your height is due to the absence or presence of a particular gene sequence. Similarly, gene sequences can influence physical features like obesity type, skin type, and risk of diseases.
Tests with a GeneLife testing kit is very simple. All we need for a DNA sample is your saliva. Unlike tests in hospitals, which require blood samples collected using needles, GeneLife tests are pain-free and convenient.
Thanks to the latest advancements in genetics, researchers can now identify the presence or absence of some of genes that affect the onset of lifestyle diseases. This allows you to understand which diseases you are genetically predisposed to. Though there’s only a 0.1% difference in the DNA sequence when comparing one individual to another, even this small variance can help to detect risks. Your genes don’t change during your lifetime (except under rare and exceptional conditions), so taking the test just once is sufficient to help you make better health and lifestyle choices based on your risk profile.
GeneLife testing kits are a convenient, secure, and affordable way to get your genes tested. Our testing kits are also designed to fit your health and lifestyle needs. From our most comprehensive test kit, Genesis2.0, that tests for more than 360 traits and items, to our more specific kits:
- - Genesis Myself2.0 tests for personality traits
- - Genesis SKIN tests for skin condition traits
- - Genesis METABO tests for metabolic syndrome
- - Genesis DIET tests for your genetic response to food and nutrition
- - GeneLife SPORTS tests for muscle growth and development

What do genetic tests tell me?
Genetic tests analyze your genes and DNA to reveal the blueprint that your body is built on. It can reveal invaluable information such as disease risk, physical traits such as metabolism, skin type, muscle type and even certain traits such as memory performance, and arithmetic abilties.
How do I prioritize my genetic test results in comparsion to my health checks and medical reports?
Your doctor and or medical professional's guidance and advice always takes priority. GeneLife test results are not intended be used as an independent tool for diagnosis. You can consider using the genetic test results in consultation with a doctor or medical professional when considering treatments. However your genetic test results should not replace any current or previous diagnosis made by a physician.
Will my genetic test results change over time? Do I need to take the test again?
Your DNA will not change during your lifetime (except under extreme circumstances). Thus, you need to only take the test once in your lifetime.
Can I take the test while pregnant?
Yes, you can take the test while pregnant. Your DNA results will not change due to your pregnancy and poses no harm to the child.
