Gene Health

Use your genetic information to get actionable health insights. Understanding how your genetic helps you profile genes that are shown to influence the risk of certain health conditions. Knowing your risk for diseases based on your genes helps you can modify your lifestyle accordingly for a healthier life.

What Is Included In Your Report?

Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition that affects how we process glucose, which is the body’s main fuel source. Twenty-nine million people suffer from diabetes in the U.S. But because of the mild symptoms associated with it, 8 million of them are undiagnosed, according to the American Diabetes Association.

Further, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 86 million Americans to be in the pre-diabetes stage. People with certain genetic types are at a higher risk of developing diabetes and should watch out for symptoms like excessive thirst, blurry vision, fatigue, irritability, and poor wound healing.

Heart Diseases

Heart disease is a broad term that covers any condition that affects the heart. Some common heart diseases include coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, and heart attack. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention, 1 in 4 deaths in the U.S. occurs due to heart disease.

High blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and smoking are risk factors for heart disease. People with certain genetic types are at a higher risk for heart disease and should watch out for signs that include shortness of breath, dizziness, fatigue, sweating, palpitations, and an ache in the chest.


Obesity refers to excess body mass, which can pose health risks. Obesity is generally measured using the body mass index (BMI), which is obtained by dividing the weight of a person by the square of the person’s height. A person with a BMI over 30 kg/m2 is considered obese, while a BMI between 25 and 30 kg/m2 is defined as being overweight.

Obesity is a combination of inherited and lifestyle factors. People with certain genetic types are at a higher risk of becoming obese and should watch out for symptoms like breathlessness, fatigue, joint and back pain, and poor self-confidence.


Anxiety disorders are characterized by feelings of fear and anxiety. While occasional anxiety is normal and even beneficial in certain situations, overwhelming and persistent feelings of fear and anxiety are not good for both mental and physical health. Common causes of anxiety disorders include environmental stress, drug withdrawal, medical conditions like hypothyroidism and Alzheimer’s, and genetics.

26% of the risk attributed to anxiety is due to genetics. People with certain genetic types are at a higher risk of developing anxiety disorders and may exhibit symptoms like excessive worry, sweating, trouble sleeping, increased alertness, nausea, poor concentration, or trembling.

Awareness Of Genetic Diseases

Our Gene Health report helps you understand how your genetics can influence your chances for certain diseases. While cures for many of these diseases are yet to be found, understanding your risk to them can help you take action to delay or reduce the risk of activating them through environment and lifestyle changes.

Susceptibility to Obesity

People of certain genetic types are at a higher risk of being obese and should watch out for symptoms like breathlessness, inability to cope with physical activity, fatigue, joint and back pain and poor self-confidence. Exercise can greatly lower the effect of some of the causing genes to about a third.

Type 2 Diabetes

People of certain genetic types are at a higher risk of developing diabetes and should watch out for symptoms like: excessive thirst, blurry vision, fatigue, irritability and poor wound healing. Lifestyle changes lowered diabetes risk by 46% when compared to people with no lifestyle change.

Heart Disease

People of certain genetic types are at a higher risk for heart disease and should watch out for signs that include: shortness of breath, dizziness, fatigue, sweating, palpitations, and an ache in the chest.

What are the MENADNA genetic test and reports? What is the major benefit?

The MENADNA genetic tests and reports have been designed from data curated from genomic analysis of the Middle-East and North African population. The test offering provides an individual with a glimpse into their genetic composition and an insight into their future health based on their unique genetic make-up. The genetic test offers you information on the following: your health, your allergies, your skin, your nutrition, and your fitness.

How does the MENADNA test work?

You need to get an MENADNA kit, which you can order on this site. The kit contains 2 sample collection tubes: a saliva sample and a swab sample. Once you register this kit you will receive an email and be contacted by our representative for sample pick up. DNA will be extracted from your samples and processed via different techniques. Once your data is analysed and processed the same will be available online in the form of a report. You can login to your MENADNA account and view this report and download the same as well.

What does the MENADNA test cover?

We currently offer 4 different reports: Gene Nutrition, Gene Fitness, Gene Health and Gene Skin.

How easy is it for me to understand my results?

The reports are usually detailed and self-explanatory. Your individual report will include the results of your DNA analysis under each report tab with recommendations on how to use the information provided.

Can I order more than one test?

Yes, you can order as many tests as you want. Each account can register multiple test kits and view the individual resulting reports. However, we would recommend creating separate accounts when individuals would prefer to view their results privately. You can order the kits on behalf of family and friendly and they can create a separate MENADNA account post-purchase and register them against their own accounts for easy and private access.

How do I track my sample?

You will get alerts at various stages indicating the status of your sample kit right from the time it reaches the processing lab to when your results are out. We will use your email for these alerts.

What is the turnaround time for MENADNA reports?

You will get your reports within 4-6 weeks from the time your sample is received at the processing lab. You will receive an email alert once the report is available online. You can use your login credentials to access the report. Sometimes unplanned delays could be expected.

How do I take my own saliva and swab samples?

Do not eat, drink, smoke or chew gum for 30 minutes before giving your saliva and swab samples. Instructions on how to collect the samples properly will be included with your kit in both English and Arabic. Most people take 5 to 10 minutes to complete the samples collection

How do I register my test kit/s?

Once you create your account, you will be directed to your account page which will include a kits registration feature. For each kit you want to register you will use the barcode on the side flap on the kit box. Please ensure you note which kit number belongs to each individual you are testing to ensure you know which report belongs to each individual being tested.

What is the minimum age requirement for the MENADNA test?

There is no minimum age requirement. However, these reports are intended for adult (+18) usage to understand and benefit from the recommendations.
