What is the difference between ‘low’ and ‘high’ likelihood of allergy?
If you carry a high number of genetic markers that have been identified as ‘risk variants’ for a particular allergy. In this case, you may be predisposed to the allergy, with the report indicating a likely higher risk (red). If a low/lower number of genetic markers that contribute to the risk are identified in your DNA raw data, a low-risk (green) outcome is indicated in the report. Such people are considered to be at low risk for the specific allergy.
Please note that everybody’s body is different. An allergy may develop even later in life without any genetic predisposition or changes to your DNA. Watch out for symptoms and if you observe any, get in touch with your doctor right away.
