DNA OESTROGEN:

Did you know that close to 80% of breast cancer occurs in women with NO family history of cancer. Having your Oestrogen gene tested may help reduce your risk. Having an increased exposure to oestrogen in your life is a strong risk factor for breast cancer.

The DNA Oestrogen test investigates gene variants that “have been shown to have an impact on how oestrogen is processed in your body and if the processing of oestrogen and related compounds is efficient and healthy”.

The DNA Oestrogen test reports on the following:

  • Variations in specific genes involved in metabolizing oestrogen
  • The impact of high-risk gene variations can have
  • Intervention strategies if you have a high-risk genetic variation
  • Personal risk factors associated with Hormone replacement therapy, “Oral contraceptives, bio-identical supplementation and in vitro fertilization”

So Who should take this test?

The DNA Oestrogen genetic test is important for woman considering:

  • Oral contraceptives
  • HRT (hormone replacement therapy)
  • Bio-identical supplementation

As well as women who are:

  • Considering in vitro fertilization

Women who have been diagnosed with:

  • Oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.

We use the DNA Oestrogen test results to prescribe personlise nutritional and lifestyle interventions in order to lower breast cancer risk in those woman with a high-risk genetic profiles.
