There are a number of different benefits that are associated with genomic testing. With this service, you can expect the following:
There are many different types of genomic tests. The best thing to do is book a consultation, and we will be able to tell you about the sort of tests that are going to be right for you. To give you a better understanding, though, let’s take a look at some of the genomic tests that we carry out.
Before you have a genomic test here at Omniya, it is a good idea to try and get as much information as possible about the medical history of your family. Once you have done this, you will be able to speak to one of our doctors about your family and personal medical history so that they are better able to understand your risk. This could be the perfect opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have and ask any questions.
Other than this, there really isn’t any specific action you need to take. The test needs no prior preparation.
A genomic test will typically be conducted by using a sample of your saliva, which will be analysed at a genetic testing laboratory, and we will then contact you when we have the results.
You will be told when to expect your test results, and one of our friendly team will give you a call when they are ready to book a follow-up appointment with you. The results will show a variety of genetic markers that mean an in-depth conversation and advice session would be required. We do not ordinarily give results via the telephone as we believe these matters are best discussed in person, but if it is not possible to attend an appointment, please let your doctor know.
We recognise that not everyone is going to be happy with the results they receive from genomic testing, especially if you figure out you are at high risk of a certain condition or addiction. It can be a very difficult and challenging period in anyone’s life, and we will be there for you, helping you to understand your results and the different options that are available to you.
We will make sure that you are aware of what the genetic test results mean for you. This could be something as simple as making some changes to your exercise routine or it could mean that we need to go through different possible supplementation or treatment options with you. It all depends on the type of test you have had and the results you have received.
At Omniya, you will have a safe and comfortable haven whereby you can ask any questions that you have about your results and the condition you’re concerned about.
