What you can expect.

Your 23andMe reports include genetic analysis of the conditions and traits listed below.

These reports include genetic factors that are known to impact risk for certain conditions and could be important for the health of your future family.

In addition, our reports on various traits cover both well-established genetic associations and more recent discoveries.

We update our reports over time as our scientific knowledge of how DNA affects health and traits evolve.

Genetic Health Risks (3+)

These reports tell you if you have genetic variants that are risk factors for various health conditions. Most of the time, having just one variant can be linked to higher risk for the condition.

Considerations:

  • Keep in mind that having one of these variants does not necessarily mean you will develop the condition.
  • These reports do not cover all possible genetic variants that could influence risk for these conditions.
  • Other non-genetic factors can also influence risk for these conditions.
  • Read more about 23andMe's scientific criteria for reporting genetic associations here.

Carrier Status (40+)

The reports in this category tell you if you have genetic variants that have been linked to recessive conditions. Recessive conditions occur when a person has two variants for that condition, one inherited from each parent. A person with just one variant for these conditions is known as a carrier. Carriers do not have the condition, but they can pass a variant to their children.

Considerations:

  • These reports include only a subset of possible variants that may be linked to a condition. It is possible to have other variants not included in these reports.
  • If you have a family history of any of these conditions and are thinking about having children, you should discuss options for testing with your doctor.

Wellness (5+)

These reports help you understand how your DNA influences your body's response to environmental factors like diet or lifestyle. Our Wellness Reports make connections between your DNA and traits that may relate to healthy living.

Considerations:

Our reports do not diagnose any health conditions or provide medical advice. Consult with a healthcare professional before making any major lifestyle changes.

Traits (15+)

These reports tell you about genetic variants that may influence different non-health related traits. Keep in mind that many traits are influenced by multiple factors. Traits may be influenced to varying degrees by genetics and the environment. This category includes noticeable traits like eye colour as well as subtle traits like timing of a person's first tooth.

Considerations:

  • These reports describe study findings observed in groups of people. The findings may not be representative of individuals.
  • Many of the genetic variants reported are associated with normal variation and may have small effects on the trait.
  • Many factors besides those described in the report may also influence the trait.

Keep in mind that many conditions and traits are influenced by multiple factors. Our reports cover only specific genetic factors, but there may be additional factors not included in these reports. Lifestyle and environment may also affect a person’s health and traits. Our reports are intended for information purposes only and do not diagnose disease or illness.
