DNA Testing in Traverse City, MI

Genetic testing has changed the face of preventive medicine. Our DNA highlights our unique characteristics and can help define distinctions in our body. Old Mission Lifestyle Medicine partners with 3X4 Genetics and TruAge by TruDiagnosticâ„¢, a health data company, to perform DNA and biological age testing, respectively.

DNA at-home tests from 3X4 Genetics deconstruct the needs and capabilities of the genes, allowing our expert team to create more compatible treatments and generate beneficial results. DNA testing or genetic testing can help determine if an individual is at a higher risk for developing cancer or other diseases due to hereditary factors. Science and research show that DNA testing also provides healthcare professionals with a better understanding of how one particular human body processes foods, carbohydrates, fat, protein, micronutrients, and more. These processes can help determine which medications and fitness activities are the most beneficial for healing, managing disease, or weight loss.
