Test your genetic risk of developing Parkinson's disease so you can make life changes to reduce the chances
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive, neurological disease that mainly affects movement. Parkinson's disease results from the destruction of nerve cells in a part of the brain called the basal ganglia.
Parkinson's disease occurs when the nerve cells in the part of the brain that controls muscle movement are gradually destroyed. The damage gets worse with time. The exact reason that the cells of the brain waste away is unknown. The disorder may affect one or both sides of the body, with varying degrees of loss of function.
Medigoo have developed a test that analyses your DNA in order to determine your genetic risk of developing factors. The test is easy to carry out, it is a quick swab brushed against the inside of your cheek which collects a DNA sample. That sample is then sent to Medigoo’s professional lab for analysis.
Within 3 weeks, once your sample has been analysed you will receive an email detailing all the genetic analysis in relation to your risk of Parkinson’s. Don’t worry the information will all be explained, and guidance will be provided so that you can use the findings to improve your quality of life and reduce chances of Parkinson’s in the future.
