Anxiety & Depression DNA Testing

Depression and anxiety disorders are medical conditions. They aren’t the result of failure or weakness. What you feel is the result of underlying causes and triggers; it’s not the result of something you did or didn’t do.

Depression is a mental health condition characterized by persistent sadness, hopelessness, and negative mood. According to the WHO, it affects an estimated 350 million people worldwide.

People with depression may be concerned about speaking up in fear of what might change at school or work, as well as in their relationship.

When they realize the people around them have not experienced depression, they may feel very alone. They may start to worry that others will think they don’t appreciate what they have if they appear sad or down. They may worry about being a burden to others—or seen as a liability.

On their workplace

They may worry that their boss won’t think them capable of doing their job if they know they have depression. When young people in school are depressed, they may be wrongly labeled “slackers” or told that they are not “trying hard enough.”

In relationships

People with depression may not talk about their experience because they are afraid others won’t understand. They may worry that their spouse, family, and friends will stop loving them. They may fear the people they care about will blame them for the feelings they have.

When a person with depression internalizes these messages, they may come to believe they are not smart or capable—and depression has a way of reinforcing those false beliefs by making someone have a low opinion of themselves.

What are the symptoms of each condition?

Some symptoms of depression and anxiety overlap, such as problems with sleep, irritability, and difficulty concentrating. But there are several key differences that help distinguish between the two.

Individually, inherited metabolic disorders that can cause psychiatric symptoms are rare disorders, but when they are considered collectively, the prevalence can be quite common. However the exact prevalence of psychiatric presentations due to underlying inherited metabolic disorders was difficult to determine.
But now it’s possible to Analyse a very long list of related genes using -Next Generation sequencing Technology (NGS) to find the
late onset inborn errors of metabolism that can result in psychiatric symptoms.
Mental Health comprehensive DNA Test. (80 plus Genes analysis)
Identification of Mental conditions, as early as possible, in the diagnostic process provides the best chance to intervene with the appropriate clinical and psychological management to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient. Many of the conditions are treatable with dietary modification to restrict the offending substrate, the use of vitamin cofactors to increase intrinsic enzyme activity, or the use of medication to detoxify the metabolites involved.This Test is best for everyone who have any kind of Mental issues.

This Test is also appropriate for patients who present with acute onset or chronic symptoms which may include:

  • Altered level of consciousness
  • Disorientation/confusion
  • Mood disorders/refractory depression
  • Delusions/Hallucinations
  • Unexplained diminished cognitive or executive functioning
  • Psychosis
  • Self-injurious behavior
  • Aggression/irritability
  • Anxiety disorders/OCD
  • Schizophrenia
  • Personality disorders
  • Dissociative disorder
  • Paranoia
  • Catatonia
  • Dementia
  • Attention deficit disorder
  • Physical symptoms could include: movement disorders, ataxia, eye abnormalities or hepatosplenomegaly
