Food intolerances or allergies often lead to chronic inflammatory conditions responsible for many diseases. Most immune cells are located in the gastrointestinal tract and consuming intolerable foods can mislead them, thus weaking the immune system and increasing susceptions to serious illness. Therefore, it is important to take care of the correct diet and to exclude or limit all harmful factors in it.

Many food hypersensitivity is genetically determined and an appropriate study allows identification of individual predispositions of the organism in question to a specific disorder. By knowing the results of such a study, you can change your lifestyle accordingly and minimize or eliminate the risk of symptoms altogether.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is found in vegetable products, fatty fish, fish oils and eggs. It is also synthesized in the skin when exposed to solar radiation. It mainly affects the economy of calcium and phosphorus in the human body, which is to ensure proper functioning of the nervous system and proper bone density. Vitamin D is also important for the immune system, pressure regulation or inhibition of tumour development.

Vitamin D Deficiencies

Vitamin D deficiencies can cause bone lesions, increase the risk of heart disease, autoimmune diseases or cancers. Lack of adequate levels of vitamin D is particularly dangerous for pregnant women, as it can affect the proper development of the child.

What genes are analysed in the study and what do they influence?

The first of the analyzed genes is CYP2R1, which encodes the formation of an enzyme called cytochrome P450. This enzyme is responsible for activating vitamin D in the body for a more accessible form. Changes in the gene result in a lower synthesis of vitamin D3 in the body, which may be associated with the onset of deficiency. The next analyzed gene is GC. It encodes the protein component GC-Globulin. The function of this protein is to connect with vitamin D and transport it from the skin to the liver, where it transforms into an active form. Studies show that mutations in the GC gene are associated with low levels of vitamin D by lowering the level of GC-globulin protein in the body, resulting in a decrease in its ability to transport.

Who is recommended to perform the test?

The study is directed to people who want to take care of their health. Especially worth recommending for women who are planning to enlarge the family. Thanks to knowledge of vitamin D metabolism, the doctor will be able to advise them with appropriate supplementation, protecting against the development of diseases occurring during pregnancy and preventing the abnormal development of the child. Information on the metabolism of vitamin D will also be useful to people who are regularly practicing sports, because the correct level allows them to maintain strong muscles and reduce the risk of injuries caused by reduced bone density.

Can I donate this study to someone?'

You can transfer/donate selected studies to another person. You just need to enter the box names for each of the selected products when completing your order after entering your shipping address. By giving different names of boxes (e.g. 1-my, 2-for-mum) You can create test kits for both yourself and the people you want to donate GeneMe study to.

It is also worth remembering that:

Each successive test within one SWAT (i.e. one box) is awarded for 50% of the price.
We send your entire order to one of the specified addresses to send the boxes in different places to separate orders.
