Conditions tested for—and other key details to know.

AncestryHealth® includes tests developed and performed by our independent laboratory partners, which look for DNA differences known to be linked to individual health conditions. Read about each condition, what it means, and what you can learn from your reports. As part of AncestryHealth® you’ll also receive wellness reports which can show how genetics may influence certain aspects of your wellness.

Understanding your results.

If a DNA difference is found for a particular condition, it means there is a higher chance of developing the health issues tied to that condition. But this doesn’t mean you’ll develop those issues—genetics is just one of many factors linked to developing a condition. Similarly, if no DNA differences are found, the chance of developing a health issue can’t be ruled out. You should always consult with a healthcare provider before taking any action on a health condition based on AncestryHealth® reports.

There are resources to help.

As part of our partnership with PWNHealth, you’ll have access to certified genetic counselors through interactive webinars, direct messaging, or one-on-one counseling, where appropriate. These healthcare professionals can explain any notable findings and guide you to next steps you can take, like earlier screenings for you and your family. You should also bring your results to a healthcare provider—reports are formatted to be printable and easy for you to share.
