DIABETES Dx analyzes 16 genetic variants and provides genotype-informed recommendations, guiding the physician in clinical and lifestyle intervention. DIABETES Dx algorithm integrates the individual’s ancestry, family history, and anthropometric variables.

Importance of DIABETESDx Testing

The results report provides the risk score, genotype, and recommendations on diet, physical activity, medications, supplements and laboratory tests. T2D risk quantification Patient’s genetic profile Mechanisms associated with the patient’s susceptibility to T2D Recommendations for intervention based on the patient’s genotype.
