Traitwell's Health and Wellness Checker is a free and simple self-assessment tool that checks your genetic predisposition for aging, behavioral, physical, health, and mental health traits.Get Started For Free
"Looking ahead, the anticipated advances in technology development, biological insights, and clinical applications (among others) will lead to more widespread integration of genomics into virtually all areas of biomedical research, the adoption of genomics into mainstream medical and public-health practices, and an increasing relevance of genomics in everyday life."“STRATEGIC VISION FOR IMPROVING HUMAN HEALTH AT THE FOREFRONT OF GENOMICS” - NATURE
Your DNA can provide important clues about your health and wellness.
Research suggests that a combination of genetic factors, family history, environment, and life experiences affect the development of many characteristics and conditions.
Part of taking care of yourself is finding out whether your genes are working for or against you so that you can make the choices that will help you thrive.
Health and Wellness Checker is not a diagnostic or screening tool. Depending on your results, you may want to discuss formal health assessment options with a licensed healthcare provider.
If you’ve already gotten your DNA tested by 23andMe, AncestryDNA, MyHeritage, Living DNA, or Family Tree DNA, you can upload your raw DNA file to our Health and Wellness Checker to estimate your baseline genetic risk for a variety of health and wellness traits and conditions.
Keep in mind that direct-to-consumer genetic testing services like 23andMe, AncestryDNA, Living DNA, Family Tree DNA, and MyHeritage don’t test your whole genome – instead, they only test certain parts of your genome that they think might be important. Different companies test different parts of your genome so your results might vary depending on which service you used.
Our algorithms “fill in” the missing parts using an industry-standard method called statistical imputation and then compare this imputed genome against carefully vetted studies from the NHGRI-EBI Catalog of Human Genome-Wide Association Studies to estimate your genetic predispositions.
Since Traitwell Health and Wellness Checker results are based on direct-to-consumer data from providers like 23andMe, they are quite accurate for common genetic variants but not for rare genetic variants. For rare genetic variants, the false-positive rate can be very high. That’s why this is an educational resource and not medical advice.
Check back often for new traits.
