Discover Your Risks With DNA Screening For Cancer

You are a product of the interactions between your DNA and your environment. Discover what makes you…you! Let our DNA testing give you the knowledge about your health risks.

Roughly 5-10% of all cancers are caused by inherited genetic variants that can be passed down within a family. Having one of these variants doesn’t mean you will get cancer- it simply means you are at a higher risk. Knowing this risk gives you the information you need to make informed decisions about your way of life. We can help.

 

Why Use Better To Know?

As this aspect of medical science evolves, there are more options available today than ever. It can be hard to determine the best option for you.

For years, we’ve been providing DNA testing for physician practices, clinics, other labs and hospital systems across the country. We provide medical grade genetic testing– no short cuts. Our results are what the medical community depends upon for treatment options and alternatives. You deserve the best. You deserve Better To Know.

DNA Tests & Pharmacogenomics

Pharmacogenomics is the study of how your genetic makeup can affect your response to certain medications. Imagine knowing what medications will work best for you, which meds won’t have much effect at all and which ones might create possible negative side effects. Our test will give you valuable guidance for medications and dosage. Now, you can have the right meds, at the right dose, at the right time.

Know Your Carrier Status

Our Carrier Screening test identifies if you are a carrier for a hidden, recessive disease-causing genetic variant. While carriers are unaffected by recessive conditions, children that inherit two recessive variants from each parent will be affected.

Many of these conditions are incredibly debilitating. Conditions tested for include:

Sickle Cell Anemia
Cystic Fibrosis
 Galactosemia
 Tay-Sachs
 Glycogen Storage Disease Type IA
Dihydrolipoamide Dehydrogenase Deficiency  
More

By testing to see if one or both parents carry hidden recessive variants, a couple can make proactive choices in family planning.

 

How Accurate Are DNA Tests?

When it comes to your medical information, everyone wants to reduce the margin of error. That’s why our labs maintain the highest level of medical standards. Our DNA tests:

  • Exceed the FDA criteria for clinical validity
  • All samples are processed in labs that are COLA accredited and CLIA certified
  • Come with easy-to-understand reports

While no test is 100% accurate, our labs maintain the highest standards in the medical industry. We strive to provide the most valid results possible.

 

 

 

What Do DNA Tests Tell You?

DNA testing is becoming increasingly popular. While some people gift DNA tests to loved ones, we believe it’s important to understand the information you may receive before taking this kind of test.

People typically take at home DNA tests for three reasons- to get information about their ancestry, their health or both. While we do not provide information about ancestry, we give you detailed info about your genetics as it relates to:

  • Risk of hereditary cancer diseases
  • Carrier status for recessive disorders
  • Impact on drug metabolism and side effects

 

Our tests provide you with a wealth of information that you can use to make informed decisions about your health and wellness.

While the results of any DNA test provide information, they should not be taken as an definitive diagnosis. It’s important that you interpret the results carefully- ideally, with your healthcare provider.

Your DNA=Your Privacy

It’s come to light recently that there are other DNA testing companies that share information about your genetics with third parties. At Better To Know, we will never, ever, sell your information to anyone for any reason. We value and protect your privacy.

Our medical laboratory was founded and run by medical professionals bound by strict laws of confidentiality. We’re used to keeping your information private. It’s just what we do.

My husband and I were worried about passing on the genes for sickle cell anemia to our newborn. Our test came back negative, and we couldn’t be more relieved!
