Take this test to determine whether you’ve inherited genetic variations that increase your risk of developing osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is characterized by fragile bones and an increased susceptibility to fractures, which is more prevalent among the elderly.



Robust and healthy bones are vital for structural support, muscle and ligament anchoring, organ protection, and essential mineral storage throughout life.

Bone mass peaks around age 30, and gradually declines with age thereafter. Awareness of genetic susceptibility to osteoporosis may prompt early and regular monitoring, enabling healthcare professionals to tailor preventive strategies and interventions specific to your risk profile. This personalized approach can contribute to the maintenance of bone health and the reduction of fracture risk, ultimately enhancing overall quality of life as you age.

Some of the genes tested also contribute as a risk factor for osteoarthritis, a joint disease characterized by the breakdown of the protective cartilage within joints and surrounding bone tissue. People with osteoarthritis suffer from joint swelling, pain and reduced joint motion. Commonly affected joints are in the hands, lower back, hips and knees.

Understanding your genetic  predisposition to these conditions can lead to more proactive measures to preserve bone health resulting in improved health outcomes.

What’s inside your kit?

The Osteoporosis Home DNA Test analyzes 5 different genes associated with developing Osteoporosis and overall bone health.

‍Genetic factors contribute up to 85% of the variation in bone mineral density, also affecting the risk of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

‍For each gene tested, your specific genotype will be identified. Your genotype refers to the exact changes observed in your DNA, which directly impact your risk of developing Osteoporosis. Understanding your genetic risk for Osteoporosis provides you with the opportunity for early intervention and prevention through dietary and lifestyle changes.

‍Genes Analyzed

Here are the 5 different genes tested that play a part in increasing your risk of developing Osteoporosis:

Gene(s) TestedEffect
CYP2R1Increases the risk of vitamin D deficiency, leading to reduced absorption of calcium. Adequate calcium is essential for healthy bones.
GCIncreases the risk of vitamin D deficiency and reduced absorption of calcium.
WNT16Increases the risk of reduced bone formation.
COL1A1Affects the normal regulation of the maintenance, development and repair of bones, joints and cartilage.
GDF5Affects the formation of collagen (an essential strength and structural component of bones).

Osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when bone mass and bone density deteriorates, or when the bones become brittle and weak. This disease progresses silently without any symptoms or pain, and is not identified until bones fracture. It is more common in individuals over the age of 50. Understanding your genetic risk for Osteoporosis provides you with the opportunity for early intervention and prevention through dietary and lifestyle changes.

Being aware of your genetic predisposition allows you the opportunity for early intervention and prevention. Speak with your primary care physician or healthcare professional about what your result means for you.
