What is Myogenes Genetic Testing for Health & Fitness?

  • A review of your personal genetic risk of deficiencies in vitamin and minerals
  • Your genetic disposition to health factors including obesity, cholesterol, bone density and blood sugar levels

As genetics never change, testing can be completed by patients of any age

 

What does it involve?
