Laboratory tests check a sample of your blood, urine, or body tissues. A technician or your doctor analyzes the test samples to see if your results fall within the normal range. The tests use a range because what is normal differs from person to person. Many factors affect test results. These include

  • Your sex, age and race
  • What you eat and drink
  • Medicines you take
  • How well you followed pre-test instructions

Your doctor may also compare your results to results from previous tests. Laboratory tests are often part of a routine checkup to look for changes in your health. They also help doctors diagnose medical conditions, plan or evaluate treatments, and monitor diseases.

Genetic testing has potential benefits whether the results are positive or negative for a gene mutation. Test results can provide a sense of relief from uncertainty and help people make informed decisions about managing their health care. There are several use for genetic testing:

  • Diagnostic testing: it is used to identify or confirm the diagnosis of a disease or condition in a person or a family. It is helpful in determining the course of a disease and the choice of treatment.
  • Predictive genetic testing: it determines the chances that a healthy individual with or without a family history of a certain disease might develop that disease.
  • Presymptomatic genetic testing: it is used to determine whether persons who have a family history of a disease, but no current symptoms, have the gene alterations associated with the disease.
  • Carrier testing: it is performed to determine whether a person carries one copy of an altered gene for a particular disease.

The entire digestive tract has an area of 1000 m², which represents the largest area of the human body. It contains 100,000 billion micro-organisms that play an important metabolic, secretory and immunological role. Many endogenous and exogenous factors influence the quantitative and qualitative composition of the flora. An imbalance of this composition can cause gastrointestinal

The biocheckup is a precocious diagnosis program focusing on the physiopathological imbalance associated with society illnesses. The precocious diagnosis of the metabolism imbalance at an early stage, before the appearance of an illness, pushes you to take adapted measures that can have a reversible effect on the development of the illness. The genetic heritage, different

First question: what is Candida? Did you ever hear about it? Candida is a fungus, which is a form of yeast, and a very small amount of it lives in your mouth and intestines. Candida organisms commonly colonize the human gastrointestinal tract as a component of the resident microbiota. It helps out with digestion and nutrient

a-    Background Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM, OMIM#192600) is a well-known primary disease of the myocardium. HCM is defined by unexplained ventricular hypertrophy with preferential hypertrophy of the septum and anterior left ventricular wall in the absence of a detectable cause. This disorder has a prevalence within the general population of one in 500, or 0.2%. It

We offer an extensive IgG food allergy laboratory test. Your blood sample will be analysed by a specialised laboratory which determines the presence of antibodies against a broad variety of foodstuffs. What is an IgG food allergy? These type III food allergies often remain undetected because the symptoms may occur only after a few hours

a-    Background Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder characterized by recurrent seizures. It has an estimated prevalence of about 0.08% and a lifetime cumulative incidence of about 3%. Approximately 60% of epilepsy cases have no cause other than a genetic predisposition, while the rest are due to a major acquired cause. However, the probability of

a-    Background Colorectal cancer (CRC) affects 1 in 20 people during their lifetime. An estimated 25% of all CRC cases present a familial clustering of the disease suggesting a contribution of genetic factors among other risk factors, while approximately 5% of all CRC cases are purely hereditary. Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer, also known as Lynch
