• Early detection can identify previously unknown health risks which allows patients to take control of their health risks and tailor treatment and therapies to address their specific health needs.
• The tests help medical teams to understand the severity of a disease to ensure a personalized management plan is offered and provides insights into factors that might be contributing to a higher risk for certain diseases.
• Prevention improves a patient’s health span and quality of life as they age, extending their healthy years and improving their overall well-being.
At present, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi conducts up to 10 different tests on a single patient blood sample, measuring:
• Risk of a cardiovascular event like stroke or heart attack
• Liver fat
• Cardiorespiratory fitness (V02 max)
• Lean body mass
• Body fat percentage
• The impact of alcohol consumption on the patient
• Glucose tolerance
• Visceral fat
• Resting energy rate
• Kidney function
It is estimated, that around 16% of healthy
adults carry a serious health-related genetic risk. The proactive genetic
health screen is a blood test designed for healthy individuals to give them an
important insight on specific genetic risks based on their DNA.
This genetic health
screen reveals if you are at increased risk (or not) for specific hereditary
conditions including hereditary cancer syndromes, hereditary cardiovascular
disorders, in addition to other medically important hereditary conditions by
analyzing 147 well-established genes.
Individuals who test positive for risk- increasing genetic variants after performing the proactive genetic health screen, are encouraged to see our genetic counsellor for a detailed discussion on the implications of the result. They will also receive early care by their clinicians, through which they are given the options of regular follow up, early intervention, if indicated, to prevent disease onset, and advice on beneficial lifestyle changes. To see if you are eligible to undergo the proactive genetic health screen, please refer to the attached genetic health questionnaire.
A multidisciplinary team of specialists will
help you identify which factors in your lifestyle might be affecting your
health in a negative way. We focus on nutrition, movement, sleep, risk
substances, stress and social connection. The proteomic and genomic tests help
us identify which area of your health needs the most attention now. We work
with you using proven methods over 3 or 6 months to help you change your habits
and redirect your health. If we identify genes that confer a higher risk of cardiovascular
disease or cancer, we offer referrals to our specialty clinics including
cardiology and high-risk cancer clinics.
