The start of a new year is the ideal time for a fresh start; making new resolutions, setting new goals and perhaps even moving into a new direction.
UDoTest has kicked off 2016 in spectacular style by launching launched two new, potentially life-saving home medical tests to our offering: bowel (colon) cancer and genetic gluten intolerances.
Bowel (colon) cancer quick facts:
• Colon cancer is one of the most common cancers found in both men and women over the age of 50;
• There are an estimated 100,000 new cases of colorectal cancer (CRC) found each year in the USA alone;
• Although it is one of the easiest forms of cancer to treat, it is also the one that is least screened for;
• Colonoscopy candidates need only be screened every 1 to 2 years using the UDoColonTest;
• The UDoColonTest is 98 percent accurate in detecting cancerous and precancerous risks.
Gluten intolerance quick facts:
• Approximately 1 out of 30 people will experience severe gluten intolerance that may lead to celiac diease (CD) in their lifetime;
• As people are becoming increasingly clued up on what they eat and why, they are also becoming more concerned about the amount of gluten present in the food that they consume;
• CD is one of today’s most common illnesses that results from both genetic and environmental (gluten) factors;
• Long term consequences of untreated CD include chronic system inflammation, poor nutrition and the inability to absorb nutrients;
• Where or not one should follow a gluten free diet is the question which needs to be answered and the new, once-off, UDoGlutenTest can help provide those answers;
• The UDoGlutenTest can be self-performed, and screens for the presence or the absence of certain sets of DNA variations that put you at risk for the severe intolerance to gluten.
