You can access your personalized genetic risk reports for conditions caused by a single gene (monogenic conditions) from your Health results summary page.
The genetic risk report for monogenic conditions is structured very similarly to the polygenic risk report, but has some key differences that are important to point out.
In the following sample report, one risk variant was detected for Crohn’s disease.
The report explains what type of variant was found, and how that variant translates into your genetic risk of developing the disease. This includes a breakdown of how your risk compares to others with the same genetic variants as you and to the general population.
In the report details tab, you’ll find out more about the specific variants that were analyzed. Typical variants appear in green; pathogenic or risk variants, meaning variants that may contribute to the development of disease, appear in red.
Below the list of variants, you’ll see an explanation of the test methodology and interpretation used by MyHeritage. This includes information about the lab, the custom-designed DNA chip, and the secondary validation process for significantly increased risk results to reduce false positives.
This test is intended to provide users with valuable information about their health that may help inform lifestyle decisions and conversations with their healthcare provider. Decisions about diagnosis and/or medical treatment should be based on clinical evaluation, additional screening, and other information your healthcare provider deems appropriate.
