AncestryHealth? reports are designed to be easy to understand, with clear, actionable steps you can take in partnership with a healthcare provider to help chart a healthier path forward, as well as access to additional resources to help make it happen.
Your DNA is scanned for a select number of differences that are related to an increased chance of developing particular inherited health conditions. These results are used, along with the family health information you provide before activating your kit, to produce a set of health reports, each associated with a specific health condition.
Here’s a full list of our current reports:
AncestryHealth? includes laboratory tests developed and performed by an independent CLIA-certified laboratory partner, and with oversight from an independent clinician network of board-certified physicians and genetic counselors. The test results are not diagnostic and do not determine your overall chance of developing a disease or health condition. The tests are not cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. You should consult a healthcare provider before taking any action based on AncestryHealth? reports, including before making any treatment, dietary, or lifestyle changes. AncestryHealth? is not currently available in New York, New Jersey, or Rhode Island.
It starts with your results.
Every report begins with a result, telling you whether or not your DNA indicates a connection
to that condition.
A summary of key takeaways.
Even though a lot of scientific data and information goes into your report, we make it easy for you to understand the important parts.
What it could mean for you.
If your DNA indicates a higher chance of developing a certain health condition, it’s important to know how it might affect you.
You’ll learn more about what each report tests for and, depending on your results, how it could be passed down in your family.
Genetic counseling support.
Included in the experience for certain high-risk reports is access to educational videos and genetic counseling resources through our healthcare partners, PWNHealth.
Actionable steps forward.
Included in every report are recommended actions and steps that may make a difference—whether it’s sharing results with a healthcare provider or specific lifestyle changes.
Our partnership with PWNHealth, an independent group of board-certified physicians and genetic counselors,
means that your health journey is in good hands. You’ll have access to a variety of educational resources as well
as genetic counselors to help you better understand your reports and what your next steps should be.
