genoSCORE™-LAB is a CE marked genetic test, that can predict an individual's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. It provides a broad analysis of an individual's genetics, assessing over 100,000 common genetic variations that are risk-associated with, or protective against, the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
The risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease has several components:
- depending on your genes, you may have been born with a higher or lower risk of developing the disease. This genetic risk, which includes your sex, remains constant, but getting older increases the risk for everyone.
- other external factors can also contribute to the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and its subsequent progression
Fortunately, there are many positive steps you can take that have the potential to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, but it is important to understand your risk first.
