By understanding your risk of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, you will be able to implement actions that reduce bone loss to minimize your risk of bone health complications.
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 uncover your risk of osteoporosis.
Your DNA report will provide you with detailed information on the risk variants tested and whether you have inherited any variants associated with an increased risk of osteoporosis.
