ApoE Genetic Test for Alzheimer’s and Cardiac Risk Cheek Swab

ApoE Genetic Test for Alzheimer’s and Cardiac Risk Cheek Swab
Genetic marker associated with risk of Alzheimer’s and heart disease
Variants in the ApoE gene are associated with the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular disease. This cheek swab test determines which of the E2, E3, or E4 variants of ApoE you have, thereby assessing your level of genetic risk.
Dale Bredesen, MD, world renown for his work in Alzheimer’s has stated that Alzheimer’s incidence is quickly rising to the point of being an epidemic. Dr. Bredesen’s life research has focused on the intricacies of Alzheimer’s Disease. To date, he has discovered over 38 different pathways and five major classifications associated with this degenerative disease. This is the first and only work of its type and is a must read for anyone with memory issues, declining memory or a family member with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Health & Wellness, Cancer Risk & Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

A number of other personal health risk genes are tested in the same panel of genes. Overall health and wellness predisposition to (e.g. type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cholesterol, hypertension, bone health, caffeine sensitivity, salt sensitivity, blood clotting, inflammation and mood disorders). In addition, the test provides general cancer risk based on your body’s detoxification ability and estrogen metabolism which is a vital component to well-being and how the body is operating at a cellular level or not.

Testing for other genetic variants involved in physiological processes that are linked to an increased risk for certain (lifestyle) diseases, include:

  • Blood clotting
  • Bone Health
  • Caffeine Metabolism
  • Cancer risk
  • Cholesterol and lipid metabolism
  • Circadian rhythms (sleep disorders)
  • Dementia
  • Detoxification
  • Dietary carbohydrate sensitivity
  • Dietary fat sensitivity
  • Drug metabolism
  • Exercise responsiveness
  • Heart disease
  • Homocysteine metabolism
  • Hypertension
  • Inflammation
  • Insulin sensitivity and risk for diabetes
  • Iron metabolism
  • Lactose Intolerance
  • Oxidative Stress
  • Vitamin-B metabolism
  • Salt Sensitivity
  • Stress and Mood Disorders (eg Depression / Anxiety)

Possible Strategies to Reduce Health Risk

  • What if you had the opportunity to practice lifestyle strategies that might minimise your chances of developing the disease, or might mitigate the disease process; would you want to know then?
  • What if the evidence supporting those lifestyle strategies was often confusing and even contradictory – would you still want to know?
  • Would getting a positive test cause you to do anything differently in terms of diet and lifestyle practices? Could you adopt those changes without knowing the results of the test?
  • There is potentially no effective medication currently available to treat the various diseases in a sustainable and long term way.

Get tested.  How it Works.

The process for having your DNA tested is as follows:

  1. Request a DNA Collection Kit. (Additional courier costs apply.)
  2. Contact us at info@petersmanjak.com if you would like us to discuss the best genetic test for achieving your objectives.
  3. Make an online payment.
  4. Take a quick and painless DNA sample from the inside of your cheek.
  5. Clear instructions are included in the DNA Collection Kit.
  6. Return the sample to our office or book a courier service by sending an email to orders@petersmanjak.com
  7. You will be notified via email when the sample arrives at the laboratory and when your results are ready.
  8. On receipt of the test result we interpret the report in our own risk model and discuss the results with you in person or online. Normally these reports are approximately 180 pages of feedback and for the average person the report may not make sense in order to implement a practical method and steps to enhance your own health and prevent future disease.

A normal feedback session by a practitioner is 60 minutes. However we have found that 60 minutes is too short a period to really understand the next step. So we have created a summarised schedule from your report that will guide you towards you first steps. The work required from our team to produce this schedule take an average 6 hours of analysis of your report. Our gift is the additional 4 hours of work as you are billed for only 2 hours. To have the report feedback provided make sure you purchase the DNA feedback session here.
