Symptoms of narcolepsy can appear anywhere between the ages of 10 and 30, and affect your quality of life.

Once you purchase the Genovate kit, you will receive a set of 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 identify if your daytime naps may be due to narcolepsy.

Your DNA report will provide you with detailed information on the risk variants tested and whether you are at an increased risk of narcolepsy. When combined with clinical symptoms, this genetic test is a useful tool for accurately diagnosing narcolepsy.

Genovate also offers other actionable genetic tests that focus on health and wellness, lifestyle, and ancestry. You can find them in our science store or visit Genovate to find more information.
