What is the DNA+ Personal Genome Analysis test?
It is a genetic screening test that analyses DNA to detect your risk for developing disease conditions (presently we give predisposition to 62 diseases.) It is a once in a life time test.
Apollo Hospital is the only hospital that offers DNA testing along with Health Checks in India at present.
Why do you need Health Checks after getting a DNA Check?
DNA Check is a predictive test and not a diagnostic test. A DNA test will tell us about your risk of having the disease and not whether you have the disease or not. Whereas, only a Health Check which is diagnostic, can tell you whether you have the disease at the present time or not. Basis your genome analysis, the DNA+ test will add to the personalization of your healthcare by complementing your health check.
