Genetrace Alzheimer’s Disease Test Overview
Why get tested for Alzheimer’s disease risk?
Late onset Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia that typically sets in after the age of 60. About 1 in every 10 seniors worldwide are affected by Alzheimer's disease. With an aging population, the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease has increased dramatically over the past decade.
Early signs of Alzheimer’s disease include sporadic forgetfulness and short term memory loss. Because of this, Alzheimer’s disease is very difficult to diagnose at early stages.
There is evidence that Alzheimer’s disease is hereditary. People who have a close relative with Alzheimer’s disease are at higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease themselves compared to someone with no family history of the disease. Studies show that people who carry a DNA change in the APOE gene known as APOE E4 are at 3X-15X increased lifetime risk of developing late onset Alzheimer’s disease.
While there is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, keeping your brain active with brain healthy activities can delay the onset and the progression of Alzheimer's.
Do you want to know if you are at increased risk of Azheimer’s disease?
The Alzheimer’s disease DNA test can tell you conclusively if you have inherited the APOE E4 variant associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Some of the things you can find out from the Alzheimer’s disease DNA test include:1. Your APOE E4 genotype
2. The likelihood of passing on the APOE E4 to your children
3. If you test positive for APOE E4, it means that your lifetime risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease is increased up to 15X.

Alzheimer’s disease DNA test
Overview:The Alzheimer’s disease DNA test offered by Genetrace is a comprehensive clinical quality test employing targeted SNP analysis to conclusively determine whether you inherited the APOE E4 genetic variant. The test will also tell you the chances that you will pass the high risk allele to your children. It is performed by a simple cheek swab and can be conducted on individuals at any age.
