What your results mean for your family

Your results only tell you about your own genetic risk of developing common conditions. Another family member’s genetic risk of developing the same conditions may be different. 

Your results are based on the combined effects of millions of genetic variants. Family members, even if they are closely related, may inherit different genetic variants and may therefore have a different risk.

Our test does not look at rare illnesses that run in families and are linked to specific variants or genes. If you are concerned about your risk of a rare genetic condition, talk to your doctor about other types of genetic testing.
