What is QLIFE CHECK-UP Test?
QLIFE check-up test is a health screening test that allows the prediction of diseases that you may encounter due to your genetic structure. In this test kit, a swab sample is taken from inside the cheek and analysed, and a result report is produced.
Thanks to this test, diseases that you are genetically predisposed to can be scientifically detected. However, the report does not necessarily mean that you will definitely develop these diseases. The report helps you to know that you are in the risk group. Based on this information, you can shape your lifestyle and eating habits and seek preventive and protective treatment methods.
What Does QLIFE CHECK-UP Test Do?
QLIFE check-up test is performed to measure the predisposition to Alzheimer’s, ALS, asthma, hypertension, peripheral artery disease, coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, obesity, osteoarthritis, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
It is important, especially in progressive diseases such as Alzheimer’s, for individuals to know that they are in the risk group through scientific methods. This way, individuals can organize their lives according to this information. They may need to make adjustments in their career, social life, nutrition, and housing areas. Making these adjustments at an early age and applying preventive and protective treatments under the supervision of a specialist doctor can affect the health status and quality of life in the elderly period.
