Why Get Tested?
U-ology: The Door to Self-Knowledge
For the first time in history, we have access to the science within each of us, and it can tell us so much about ourselves and how to make the best choices for our body and overall well-being. DNA, our genetic code, is the starting point. From there, we layer on all of the life choices we make in terms of foods we eat, products we use, the environment we live in, etc. It’s the combination of our genetics and our life choices that make up the biology of our body. This biology is unique to each one of us … we call it U-ology.

Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is genetic testing?
Genetic testing is a type of medical test that identifies changes in chromosomes, genes, or proteins. The results of a genetic test can identify inherited mutations or predispositions that may have health implication. More than 1,000 genetic tests are currently in use, and more are being developed.
Where can I get my test?
ViaGene tests are available online, or you can purchase them through participating physicians. Tests are available in the USA & are shipped nationwide with the exception of New York.
Who should I speak with about my test results?
You have the option to speak with your primary care physician and/or Viazoi offers an in-house support team including a genetic counselor to talk through the results, concerns or questions.
ViaGene, a product of Viazoi, is a personal genetic testing resource focused on preventive and personalized healthcare. ViaGene tests identify known genetic variants in your DNA using provided saliva sample. The genetic risk profiles are not diagnostic in nature and should not be used as one. Results with greater risks for certain conditions do not necessarily mean that the patient will get that condition either now or in the future. It is important to keep in mind that genes do not act by themselves in determining your health condition and longevity. DNA is only one of the factors that matter, and genetic testing information should mainly be considered to learn ‘how DNA relates to these traits’. Environmental factors and lifestyle-related factors heavily influence the outcome of many health conditions. Thus, ViaGene assesses genetic variations to determine what you are genetically predisposed to.
Additionally, science and knowledge in the genetic testing area change quickly, and this website should not be considered error-free or as a comprehensive source of all information on a given topic.
