Home DNA Food & Pet Sensitivity Kit

Our food-sensitivity test gives actionable, reliable answers from your DNA.

Do you ever get an upset stomach, gas, diarrhea, or feel sleepy after eating? Do you suddenly have itchy eyes or difficulty breathing and suspect you might be sensitive to your new kitten’s dander? In your search for answers and solutions for relief, the HomeDNA Food & Pet Sensitivity DNA test is a great place to start.

The personalized report from our DNA test tells you whether you are genetically more sensitive or less sensitive to these specific irritants: gluten, lactose, cow-milk protein, egg, peanut, pet dander, histamine, and more. The pet and food sensitivity test gives you detailed information from your DNA about factors that may be causing discomfort from the inside out.

FAQS

  • What genes are included in the Food & Pet test?

Analysis includes over 30 genetic markers (SNPs) that have been shown through external research to be related to sensitivity within each test category (for example, Gluten). The number of SNPs tested varies by category.


  • What information is included in my report?

Your DNA is analyzed in 8 individual categories: gluten, lactose, cow milk protein, egg, peanut, other foods, pet dander, and histamine. In your report, results for each category where your genetics show a higher likelihood of sensitivity include the following sections:

  1. Your Results—See details about your DNA data and a conclusion statement

  2. Diet Tips—Get advice from professionals on how to improve your diet to lessen symptoms of sensitivity

  3. Lifestyle Tips—Discover actionable changes you can make and steps you can take to relieve effects of sensitivity

  4. Supplement Tips—Which supplements can be most helpful? We’ll tell you!

  • Do you test for any serious inherited diseases?

No. HomeDNA Food & Pet Sensitivity focuses solely on those genes that are related to the body’s sensitivity to the eight specifically-named irritants included in this test. Any DNA test performed to detect predictors for disease should be interpreted by a physician or a certified genetic counselor. Also, keep in mind this is not an allergy test. Confirmation of allergies should be issued by your medical provider.


  • Can minor children take this test?

Yes. For minor children, parental consent for testing is required via written signature on the swab envelopes.


  • Can this test be purchased in New York and/or Maryland?

No. New York and Maryland do not allow the retail sale or purchase of home DNA tests at this time.


  • Do I need to take this test more than once?

No. This test measures your sensitivity to common irritants at the cellular (DNA) level. Since DNA stays constant from childhood through adulthood, there is no need to test again.


  • What types of foods are included in the “Other Foods” category?

Shrimp, apples, tree nuts, soy, soybean, fish, corn, and yeast are included in this category.


  • My DNA shows that I am “more sensitive” across several categories. How do I know which recommendations to start with in order to feel better?

Gluten and dairy sensitivities have the most immediate physical effect on most people, so those whose DNA shows the possibility of sensitivities in these areas may want to start with those tips to see if it brings them relief. If symptoms remain, try eliminating foods from other categories, such as eggs and peanuts, then finally edibles from the “Other Foods” category. Of course, genetic indications of food or pet dander sensitivity are only one piece of the puzzle. Other factors, such as current diet, exercise, or other environmental conditions, may also affect sensitivity. Consult your medical practitioner before taking any supplements or making significant changes to your diet.


  • My report shows “results inconclusive” in a category. What does this mean?

RESULTS INCONCLUSIVE is displayed when the lab cannot detect the alleles (letters) that match with your gene or the gene is not found. This does not mean there is anything wrong with your genes or that there is something wrong with you. Each time a new DNA sample is received, the lab creates a new analysis. Sometimes an analysis produces results that fall outside the area that the software expects. When this happens, the software cannot determine which letter combination (A, T, C, G) is the correct result and issues the following symbol as a result: (–) . RESULTS INCONCLUSIVE is displayed because the algorithm needs a letter combination to make a conclusion about your sensitivity. You may have (–) as a result for one of your genes and still have sensitivities to certain foods or pet dander. Rerunning your DNA cannot fix this issue, because the same thing will happen again.


  • How is my personal and DNA information protected?

HomeDNA values the trust you place in us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to retain data accuracy, and to ensure the use of the information, we use a range of technical, physical and administrative, HIPAA-compliant, measures to protect the information we collect about our members.

Collection Instructions DNA Buccal Swabs.

Once You have pick up and received your kit simply follow this instructions:

*To maintain the integrity of the DNA sample, avoid eating, drinking, or smoking for about 20-30 minutes prior to swabbing. Doing so does not change the DNA or affect the result of the test, but foreign substances on a swab may negatively affect the ability to effectively extract the DNA.

  1. Fill out and complete the requested information on the provided sample envelope.

  2. Working on a clean surface place gloves use 4 DNA collections swabs. 1 swab at a time(keep cotton swab away for contact any surface), open mouth and rub against swabbing firmly back and forth and up and down on the inside cheek wall for about 10-15 seconds minimum on each side of the mouth chik. be sure to rotate the swab. to prevent collecting excess saliva, avoid the gum area. To dry, hold and wave swab for about 60 seconds, then place it directly into the properly-labeled DNA sample envelope.

  3. Place DNA sample envelopes inside the provided prepaid Fedex trackable envelope and drop it off at your nearest Fedex location. (DO NOT ship via USPS as your specimens will be lost)

  4. Results will be vailable in Just 6 weeks from receipt of samples at the lab
