I’m sure you’ve probably seen it in the news already. Scientists recently completed a large scale study of COVID-19 patients and discovered that there are specific genetic variants associated with severe complications that result in hospitalization .
Every news outlet reported on this over the past few weeks. This is truly groundbreaking news!
People can finally see if they have a gene directly associated with COVID-19, instead of having to only rely on studies about other coronaviruses, respiratory distress after infections, or coexisting conditions that worsen the effects of COVID-19.
In the study, people who had the negative genetic variants were significantly more likely to get coronavirus, get hospitalized, and need mechanical ventilation (compared to only needing oxygen supplementation) .
I like to say that I won the genetic lottery of bad genes. Well, I’m not lying!
Based on this groundbreaking study, our research team created 3 entire articles about it on the personalized genetics blog, so that you can easily see your results! It turns out that I am at high risk for all the major genes discussed in the study – which are all independent of each other.
Yes, I am a part of the group of unlucky individuals with risky COVID-19 genotypes.
Yes, Coronavirus is roaring back up and there’s recent news about coronavirus being able to travel much further than 6 feet through the air .
Yes, I live in a densely populated city with a virus that is airborne.
But I am not worried. I go outside every day and play volleyball in the sun.
I’m not going to hide away at home 24/7, scared of getting the virus.
All I am doing is taking my health regimen to the next level and making sure I’m prepared.
I am strictly following all of the recommendations in my COVID-19 DNA Wellness Report. We’ve recently updated this report to include analysis of the additional newly found genes related to COVID-19.
It’s crucial that you check out these new genes associated with severe COVID-19 complications.
If you know which genes or variants are increasing your risk, you can determine the best changes to make for your unique body just by looking at the suggestions within each blog article and the reports.
Once you’ve uploaded your DNA file to SelfDecode, you’ll be able to see your results AND get personalized health recommendations based on the genotype you have. The health recommendations given to you are designed to counteract any negative effects coming from your genes.
We all have unique genotypes and that’s why certain health suggestions work better for some people than others.
I know this is all a lot to take in, and it can be nerve-wracking to think about everything that’s going on with coronavirus. So, I wanted to break it down into three easy steps to find out exactly what your body needs most to combat your COVID-19 risks.
- Sign up for SelfDecode and download your COVID-19 DNA Wellness Report. If you already have a DNA file, you can get your report instantly, or you can order a SelfDecode DNA kit that will be shipped to you.
- Visit the SelfDecode Personalized Genetics Blog and go to the Respiratory Infections category. You’ll be able to see all the posts about genes related to coronavirus, with the most risky ones at the top.
- Take the personalized health recommendations from the DNA report and from the blog posts to begin building your ultimate virus protection regimen.
So go ahead and get started because the quicker you can implement a personalized health regimen, the more prepared your body will be for COVID-19. This isn’t something you want to take a chance on.
