You may simply want to optimize your diet and fitness, or you may have specific health concerns. Either way, we have a package for you. All of our packages come with a personalized action plan based on your unique health markers. You can also add genetics to any of our packages.
If you are essentially healthy, but want to get a snapshot of your health today and compare changes over time, then Baseline is a great choice. If you have a family history of diabetes or difficulty with weight control, Baseline offers good insight into these metabolic conditions. Baseline will also give you early warning signs of cardiovascular issues. If you are concerned about mental health conditions such as Alzheimer’s, depression or schizophrenia, Baseline is a good option.
Nutrition & Lifestyle
If you are looking to improve your diet and lifestyle, then Core may be the best choice for you. You’ll learn about any nutritional imbalances and discover your optimal diet and supplement requirements. You’ll also discover whether environmental exposures are affecting your health. (Core includes everything in Baseline too.)
(If you have a pre-existing condition, we recommend our Premium package, which includes full protein analysis.)
Optimal Health & Performance
If you are looking to optimize your health and performance, then Premium is the best option. If you have an existing condition or are concerned about age-related issues, then Premium will give you the most complete picture of your health. You’ll also learn about any nutritional imbalances and discover your optimal diet and supplement requirements.
Premium reports on health risks associated with inflammation and the immune system, which are linked to many chronic conditions. If you have any family history of diabetes or difficulty with weight control, you’ll get good insights into these metabolic conditions. By checking your metabolites, we are also able to give early warning signs of any cardiovascular issues.
If you want complete peace of mind about your current and future health, select Premium and Plus Genetics.
Note: optional add-on package
You can add genetics to any of our packages to get extra insight into your potential inherited* health risks. You’ll also get pharmacogenetics which looks at how your genes affect your response to medications. We provide a personalized medication profile which shows your risk of adverse or unwanted side effects to many common medications. Unlike your dynamic health markers, genetics only needs to be tested once.
If you purchase the Plus Genetics package, you will have the option to receive information about hereditary cancer risks. This is a personal preference. Not everyone wants to receive this information. See the full list of hereditary cancers reported by the Plus Genetics package.
As Molecular You does not offer diagnostic testing, we test for many, but not all, of the possible variants for these cancers. If you have concerns because of family history, we recommend that you discuss these concerns with a genetic counsellor and with your physician. The Canadian Association of Genetic Counsellors has good information about genetic counselling and can help you find your nearest clinic.
