Frequently Asked Questions

Getting a health assessment

What does Molecular You do?

Molecular You integrates your unique health biomarker data (such as your blood metabolites, environmental/dietary exposures, blood proteins, and genetics) with your lifestyle history to bring you tailored and evidence-based information about your current health and health risks. With a small blood sample, we analyze up to 4 biomarker categories to create your Health Data, and build a personalized Action Plan to help you lower your risks.

 

We upload your report to your online MYhi account which includes your health data, highlights, and customized Action Plan. You can log in anytime to dig into your own unique molecular profiles, and track your action plan progress, using our interactive and user-friendly platform.

How can I sign up for a Molecular You health assessment?

It is easy to get started today! First, send us an invitation request to let us know you’re interested in purchasing a health assessment. Our dedicated Customer Success team will create your profile and send you an invitation to setup your MYhi account within 1 business day. You will be able to purchase through your MYhi account.

Can I buy a health assessment for my child?

Molecular You profiles are valid for individuals that are 18 years or older. Our science is based on studies relevant to adults only. We recommend discussing the value of the MY assessment with one of our partner clinics before purchasing for a younger child.

What are biomarkers?

“Biomarkers,” or “markers,” are measurable substances in your body that can indicate potential health risks, infection, or environmental exposures. A summary of your biomarkers can help you make decisions and take action proactively about your health. We analyze thousands of biomarkers in our health assessments to assess your health risks, including up to:

 

  • 25 thousand gene variants (Genetics)
  • 300 blood proteins, fats, & carbohydrates (Proteins and Metabolites)
  • and 60 metals, minerals, nutrients & toxins (Dietary and Environmental Exposures)
How does Molecular You differ from other health assessment services?

Many companies now offer genetic testing which may indicate disease susceptibility, but may not paint a detailed picture of your unique overall health, disease risks, wellness, and performance. We offer a combination of integrated dynamic biomarker assessment to supplement genetic testing, to help you better understand your complex biological systems, not only your genetics. No other health service platform is this comprehensive and proactive.
