Late-onset Alzheimer’s disease affects 1 in 10 people over the age of 65. There is strong evidence that certain lifestyle modifications such as physical activity, eating healthy and lifelong learning may reduce the risk of cognitive decline. Genovate is here to make determining your risk of Alzheimer’s disease simple and more accessible. Their DNA Alzheimer’s Disease Test looks at the APOE gene linked to increased risk of late-onset Alzheimer’s.

Discovering your genetic risk may help encourage early monitoring and allow treatment to begin as soon as Alzheimer’s sets on to delay the disease’s progression.
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 and determine whether you are at an increased risk of late-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
Your DNA report will provide you with detailed information on the risk associated with each APOE variant. Find out if you are at risk with this DNA Test.
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.
