OBTAINING

YOUR

RESULTS

Genetic Screening Results:

After your genetic screening appointment, we will let you know whether or not you have the genetic variants of GRK4 and/or SLC4A5 we are looking for in our study.  We will get these results back in about 2-4 weeks. However, you will not get your specific genetic results back (other than presence or absence of variants) until you complete the two-week diet study.

All genetic information will be kept strictly confidential to our team and will be de-identified to keep personal information from being exposed.

General Screening Results:

If we find anything that presents a risk to your health on the EKG and other tests, we will share that information with you.

Two-Week Diet Results:

After you complete the two-week diet, we will share your specific genetic results and the information we obtained during the diet with you. Of course, you will also receive your $200 compensation at this point too.

Our Lab

We go through the process of obtaining genetic information and analysis of the diet study in our lab located in Fontaine Research Park. Any samples we obtain from genetic screening are taken to this location and stored there indefinitely unless a participants requests to withdraw from the study.
