At-Home DNA Tests Don’t Tell All

In case you were considering taking a direct-to-consumer DNA test like 23andMe or Ancestry, here’s a reason the think twice.

The US Food and Drug Administration do not allow direct-to-consumer companies to sell any tests that could make a medical diagnosis without oversight of their physician. But the demand to make medical disease predictions is at an all-time high. To meet demand by staying legal, then, these companies offer a watered-down version of a physician-ordered DNA test.

Take-at-home tests only test for a handful of genetic mutations and don’t offer any interpretation of the results. Because these companies can’t provide a comprehensive genetic test, their take-at-home tests will never give a complete picture of your health or future. Watch this video to learn more:

To compound the problem, consumers rarely take their results to their physician or genetic counselor and instead assume and read into their findings. (There are some things Google and forums can’t tell you!)

Although DNA Paternity Testing doesn’t offer interpretation of your genetic results, we do a complete physician-grade genetic screening. You can trust the accuracy of your results so that a physician or genetic counselor can interpret the results correctly.
