Understand your risk of type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is one of the fastest-growing diseases in the 21st century that can be prevented with simple lifestyle modification. Genovate is here to make uncovering your genetic risk for type 2 diabetes more accessible and easier than ever.

DNA Type 2 Diabetes Test ($349; genovate.com)

You may want to consider taking this test if you have relatives with type 2 diabetes because genetics can contribute to your risk of developing diabetes.

After you purchase the Genovate kit, you will receive swabs to collect your DNA and a pre-paid return envelope to easily send back your DNA to the lab. Around 7 to 10 business days after your test is received in the lab, you will be able to view your results online to determine if your DNA puts you at an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Your DNA report will include detailed information on how genetic variants contribute to your food intake, your sensitivity to dietary fatty acids, and how well your body responds to glucose and insulin. All of these factors can contribute to your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

There is no cure for type 2 diabetes, but it is easily treatable and preventable with simple lifestyle modifications. By uncovering your risk of type 2 diabetes, you can take action today and modify your lifestyle to minimize your risk.
